* A joke: A teenaged girl and her mother are at the doctor's for some unexplained weight gain and mood swings. The mother virulently swears her daughter [[MyGirlIsNotASlut behaves in every way a respectable young lady should]], and thus cannot explain these symptoms. The doctor looks at them for a moment, then gets up and looks out the window.
--> What are you doing, doctor?
--> The last time this sort of thing happened, a star appeared in the daytime, and then three men on camels showed up with expensive gifts!

* SciFi short stories sometimes like this star for a TomatoSurprise. For instance, in ArthurCClarke's ''The Star'', a Jesuit astronomer is a member of the crew which finds the remains of a peaceful, near-utopian society on a planet that had a Class 5 ApocalypseHow when its sun went supernova. His faith is shaken when he realizes that supernova was the Star of Bethelehem.

Interestingly, [[http://what-if.xkcd.com/25/ if the wise men had followed the star Sirius whenever it was visible, they would have indeed reached Bethlehem.]]

* A proverbial Star of Bethlehem appears at William's Christ-like birth in {{The X-Files}} episode "Existence".
* In a pre-Crisis Superboy/[[ComicBook/{{Legion Of Super-Heroes}} Legion]] story, the Teen Of Steel wants to use his pals advanced tech to finally locate the Star. Skeptical Brainiac 5 nonetheless aids the search, but all his efforts reveal is a planet full of a species of alien in desperate need of help. Though they never find the Star, Superboy decides that a planet in need of aid that they would never have found but for the search is the same thing as a star that seemingly never existed.
