(KYTX) - It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the Center for Earth & Space Science Education at Tyler Junior College.

Two holiday-themed shows are currently playing at the center, located at 1411 E. Lake St., on the TJC main campus.

Extended hours during the holidays are 1:30-6 p.m. Tuesdays-Fridays, 10:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturdays, and noon-6 p.m. Sundays. The science center is closed Mondays.

"Mystery of the Christmas Star" takes the audience on a journey back more than 2000 years to Bethlehem, to discover a scientific explanation for the star the wise men followed to find the baby Jesus.

The 30-minute film investigates possible dates for the birth of Christ and looks at recorded sightings of significant astronomical events during this timeframe. It identifies signs in the sky could have been remarkable enough to cause the wise men to travel across the desert from Babylon to Bethlehem just to see a newborn King. This modern retelling of the 
Christmas story is sure to charm and captivate audiences of all ages.

Show times are 4:15 p.m. Tuesdays-Sundays, with 1:15 p.m. matinees Saturdays and Sundays.

"Star of the Magi" takes a sincere and serious look at potential explanations for the Star of Bethlehem. Show times are 6 p.m. Tuesdays-Sundays.

The science center also features two shows on the Maya civilization, and its popular "Astronaut" film continues.
