The sun doesn't actually move the earth moves so does the constellations and the stars. We see them move because the solar system spins on an axis just like earth but the earth moves much faster. So we see things move but at a very slow pace all day. The constellations and stars in the sky seem to move because just like all planets they move with the solar system.
