Southern Cross Descending Over Bethlehem

6000 years ago, while standing in the area of Jerusalem, if you were looking to the south, you would have seen the southern sky as it looks in the first fews seconds of this video. There is a constellation called the "Southern Cross" that was clearly visible at that time. The earth experiences a "wobble" that is called precession which causes the stars in the sky to shift over time. This video compresses about 6500 years of "precession" into just about one minute. At about two thirds of the way through the video is the birth of Jesus Christ in Bethlehem. Bethlehem is just south and slightly to the west of Jerusalem, precisely where the Southern Cross is and had been descending for the previous 4000 years. The remainder of the video shows the Cross "setting" on the horizon until it is completely gone by 2400AD. God is amazing. 2 Peter 3:8 (Video produced with Starry Night Pro - Version 6)
