* ''Film/ThreeGodfathers'' involves three bank robbers who wind up stuck with a newborn baby to take care of in the desert. One of the three notes that it's Christmas Eve, and compares the three of them to the Three Wise Men. Then he points out an actual star in the sky over the town they need to get to--which is called New Jerusalem.

* 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 [[ApocalypseHow total extinction]] when its sun went supernova. His faith is shaken when he realizes that supernova was the Star of Bethelehem.

The Star of Bethlehem, also called the Christmas Star, is a star in [[UsefulNotes/{{Christianity}} Christian]] tradition that revealed the birth of Jesus to the magi (or "wise men") and later led them to Bethlehem. According to the Gospel of Matthew, [[TheThreeWiseMen the magi]] were men "from the east" who were inspired by the appearance of the star to travel to Jerusalem. There they met King Herod of Judea, and asked where the king of the Jews had been born. Herod then asked his advisers where a messiah could be born. They replied Bethlehem, a nearby village, and quoted a prophecy by Micah. While the magi were on their way to Bethlehem, the star appeared again. As they followed the star, it stopped this time above the place where Jesus was born. The magi found Jesus with his mother, paid him homage, worshipped him and gave gifts. They then returned to their "own country".

* One Marvel Comic featuring Ghost Rider seemed to have this occurring in modern times, on Christmas Eve, no less, accompanied by several familiar scenes right out of the Bible. Turns out it was just the Miracle Man messing around with his powers.
