    "First of all, it is clear from Matthew that the Wise Men came "from
    the East". So the implication is that in following a star to take them
    West, the star must have been in the West.
    The heliacal rising of Venus would have been in the East, wherever
    they came from, so they were not "following" Venus in the way we might
    simply expect."
    If their original location was sufficiently east of Jerusalem the
    daylight wouldn't have alowed them to see Venus or any other "star".
    For this they would have had to go west where bright stars were still
    visible in the dawn.
