It is true they appear to move across the sky. In reality, the stars are not moving, but we are.


The movement of stars across the night sky, much like the movement of the sun across the day sky, is the result of the rotation of the Earth. We view the sky from a moving platform, our planet.


The meteors appear to come from where Leo is, but as they then fly across the sky, you can see them anywhere in the sky. It is not necessary to know where Leo is in order to see the meteors. Just scan the sky continuously. During the course of the night Leo moves across the sky itself.The meteors appear to come from where Leo is, but as they then fly across the sky, you can see them anywhere in the sky.

Stars appear to move because of Earth's rotation.


Because we are rotating on our planet's axis.


...as the Earth rotates on its axis. Yes.


Stars appear to move across the sky each night because the earth is moving, but not the stars. Also some stars are only visible during certain seasons because as the earth rotates, they become visible.


Yes. The best example of this is our planet's very own star, the sun. It appears to move across the sky during the day, just like the other stars move across the sky at night. This is because the earth is turning at a rate of once every 24 hours.


The stars change position for the same reason the Sun appears to move across the sky. The Earth rotates while the stars remain in the relatively same position.


because the earth is spinning on its axis


during winter, summer and it must be at night




they didn't neccecarly go across it, they hid under them during the day then left at night


stars don't move across the sky, we orbit the sun, as you should know, and as we orbit the sun we see the stars as moving but in all actuality we are just changing position and seeing the stars at a different perspective


as the earth rotates, the sun appears to be rising and travelling across the sky (giving is day and night, etc).


Raccoons are generally nocturnal but may be abroad during daylight hours at times.



It's not a 100% for a rainbow to appear after a rain. Sometimes, a rainbow does'nt appear especially at night but during night there is a rare rainbow called a "moonbow" but it can only be seen during full moon. When there is a flash flood, the water droplets aren't stable enough to create a rainbow. Sometimes just after rain, it remains cloudy.


The rotation of the earth... The same process that changes the position of the sun and turns day into night.


Because the Earth rotates. Stars will "rise" in the east and "set" in the west, just like the sun.


Lights in general cause an ugly orange glow across the sky that was out stars and galaxies


Stars appear brighter in the night sky because it is very dark at night.



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.
