Shining like an asterisk for all those that be gathering
An asterisk — * — is shaped like a star and is usually printed in black type (thus it is a “Black Star”), so this appears to be a play on the group’s name.
Asterisks are also used to make readers take notice of a particular word or phrase.
This may also be a call back to the “Bethlehem and Nazareth” line, as according to the biblical nativity narrative, the North Star shined above Bethlehem during the birth of Christ to lead the wise men to his manger.
