From the ASK website:
"Over 600 planetariums around the world have been showing the new discoveries recorded in this 280 page book. This research not only identifies what the real star of the Wise Men was, it also reveals from the Bible the exact date and time of day (within an hour and a half) of when Jesus was born. This surprising information comes directly from the New Testament (with the application of the science of astronomy). The research is backed up with extensive reference to Roman and Jewish historical records and gives the essential astronomical data that can make the New Testament account of the birth of Jesus to be very understandable and also majestic beyond compare. There were planetary conjunctions that happened in the heavens in the period when Jesus was born (3 to 2 BC) about which modern astronomers have expressed awe and astonishment. This is one book that all people interested in science and the Bible should have. It is easy to read and understand.

"This volume has potential readers among those interested in astronomy, astrology, early Roman history, mainline Christianity, students of Bible Chronology and Prophecy, religious teachers and university professors."

New Video Presentation!
"Produced (independently from ASK) as a joint effort by Griffith Planetarium and MSNBC presented in under the topic 'Mysteries of the Universe'. The presentation is based on the historical scenario in the latest edition of Dr. Martinís The Star That Astonished the World (1996). The presentation acknowledges that Dr. Martinís has the 'best solution' to the celestial events, the 'signs in the heavens,' surrounding the birth of Jesus Christ.

"It has appeared on the MSNBC website after Thanksgiving for the past three years. If you have not seen this before, you will gain an understanding of what was seen by the Magi, in a very brief manner, when they came from the East at the time of the Birth of Christ at September 11, 3 B.C., according to the scenario."
