Question 13

Q 13) Do all the stars in the sky move? Explain.

Solution 13:

The earth rotates on its axis from west to east. Therefore, all the stars in the sky (except the pole star) seem to move from east to west. Pole star is located along the axis of rotation of the Earth in the north direction. Thus, it seems to remain stationary at a point in the sky and all other stars appear to move around the pole star.
