This is the best explanation I have ever heard!  Now let's
see...the UFO would have moved to a stationary orbit on the
eastern horizon while the Magi took a hike towards Jerusalem to
investigate it.   After they reached Jerusalem and consulted
Herod, the UFO moved to a low stationary orbit directly over
Bethlehem.  It all works!  Now all we have to do is figure out
what the aliens had in mind.  Maybe it was a honeymoon and the
extra-terrestrial couple were enjoying the Jerusalem city lights,
then later found Bethlehem to be a quiet romantic spot.

Well, the scenario is not exactly supportable by hard evidence as
you say, but at least it can be made to fit the account better
than any astronomical phenomena.
