Several myths and legends were associated with stars as ancient people use to look upon stars as gods and created myths about them.

It is believed to have shown the way to the magi, who were the three wise men from the East to find the newborn king. People still wonders whether the star that shined that fateful night is any different from those of today. The magi from the east were also astrologers of their time. They had studied the Jewish rabbis and were well aware of the triangle shape that had already appeared before the birth of Moses. This was perhaps the reason why it was interpreted that a great man was to be born on the Jewish land.
