Do all the stars in the sky move? Explain.

AcademicPhysicsNCERTClass 8

To do:

We have to explain whether all the stars move or not in the sky.

Explanation:

No, all the stars in the sky don't move in the sky. For example, a pole star located at the axis of the earth in the north direction does not move at all, it is stationary. All the stars appear to move in the sky.

Why stars appear to move in the sky:

If all the stars do not move, then let us know why do the stars appear to move. The reason behind this is the earth's rotation around its own axis. The earth rotates on its own axis from east to west. Due to the relative motion of the earth around its own axis from east to west, all the stars appear moving in the sky. During the day time, all the stars seem to disappear in the east, and at night all the stars seem to rise from the west direction.
