The relative position of the earth. The earth changes its position as it orbits around the sun. As its position changes, the ''apparent'' positions of the stars change. This is also why some constellations appear to be farther north or south or whether they are even visible or not (depending on your location) at certain times of the year. And while the axial tilt doesn't change or wobble enough to be noticeable to us, its angle, relative to the sun, affects our view of space.
