"Star of Bethlehem Question"

Many point to different conjunctions of stars to being the star of Bethlehem but we know from the text they had been following the star for about 2 years so did ANY of these conjunctions last at least 2 years in length??? Given how long it was in the sky it seems reasonable that the star was specially created for the purpose of announcing the arrival of the messiah and leading the wise men to him.
