Mars should have been well known, so I don't think that that is what is being referred to in the scripture.

Mars is the closest planet to the earth, visible to the naked eye, and has been observed for several thousand years.

The NT also speaks of a new star in the East (heliacal rising), so that we have a couple of possible candidates:

Mar 5 B.C.        Galactic Supernova in Capricorn, 70 days (Mar - May), on ecliptic [Williams #52]  The magi may have visited at the end of that supernova.

24 April 4 BC     Nova (or comet?) in Aquila, north of ecliptic [Williams #53]
