Beautiful question !! Circumpolar stars and constellations are stars and constellations the "go around the pole" = Circum (circle) polar (the pole) The North Star is called "Polaris" because it's directly above Earth's North Pole - in other words, if you went to the North Pole, "polaris" would be directly over your head. Because of this, all of the stars appear to pivot around Polaris as Earth rotates. Now I don't know where you live, but if you live in the United States, Polaris would NOT be overhead - it would be lower in the sky but still in the North. The lower on the globe you live, the lower Polaris appears in the sky. So, the stars and constellations that spin around Polaris but DON'T SET, are called circumpolar stars and constellations.

They are constellations which are near the celestial North and South Poles: that is, ones which are above the earth's poles.

The North Star is called Polaris. There is no visible star particularly close to the south pole.

No, Venus is a planet in orbit around the sun as is Earth. Polaris is a star and thousands of light years away.

Constellations are not stars. Groups of stars that look like they form various objects or shapes are called constellations.

That is called visible light.That is called visible light.That is called visible light.That is called visible light.

The big dipper is a part of the constellation called Ursa Majour (the Great Bear) and what it helps us find is the North Star (Polaris) ie it points to the North.

They are called constellations.

There are two things that cause the constellations to appear to move.The first is the earth's rotation, this causes the zodiac constellations to rise in the east at dusk move across the sky at night and set in the west at dawn just like the Sun moves across the sky during the day. Those constellations that appear near the north or south polar areas of the sky don't rise and set, they simply rotate during the night.The Earth rotates once a year round the Sun and as the zodiac constellations are arranged in a circle round the Sun in the plane of the Earth's orbit, as the Earth orbits the sun different constellations will be visible in the night sky at different parts of the orbit. This too causes the constellations to appear to move, for instance Orion is visible in the night sky during the northern winter but is on the opposite side of the Sun to Earth during the summer (and therefore not visible)The earth does not rotate once a year round the sun, its called orbiting, rotate is spinning and orbit is moving around an object. Earth is a satellite of the sun.

Patterns of stars are called constellations.

yes there are different stars and constellations by mars. thats what makes the place around it called space.

No single star points towards Polaris.

polaris has its own type of transmission fluid. it is called "polaris demand drive fluid" and is available from any polaris dealer

The north star,real name Polaris,the Pole Star,is the very end star in a group of 7 stars which make up the constellation called Ursa Minor-I have just found this in a book called The Complete Guide To The Constellations by Geoffry Cornelius.

1. Every visible star in the sky is part of a constellation. 2. A pattern in the sky that is widely recognized but not an official constellation is called an asterism. Ex. The Big Dipper or the Plough. 3. Many of the stars that make up constellations are extremely far apart but only appear to be close together.There are 88 named constellations.The Plough is part of the Ursa Major.The Constellation Sexans the Sextant is a Modern Creation.There are twelve constellations in the Zodiac.The Pole Star is in Ursa Minor.

Polaris is called the north star because it is directly above Earth's north pole. So, if you find Polaris in the sky, that direction is north. Actually, Polaris is very close, but not exactly in line with the north pole. It is off by about 0.7 degrees.

visible air pollution is called "smog"

exactly what you said its called visible light.

The patterns seen are called constellations.
