Stars and the Solar System


Do all the stars in the sky move? Explain.


No, all the stars not move in the sky. Actually, the earth rotates on its axis from west to east. Therefore, all the stars in the sky (except the pole star) appear to move from east to west with reference to Earth, pole star in the sky does not seem to move because it is located above the axis of rotation of the Earth in the north direction. It seems to remain stationary at a point in the sky.
