why does the pole star appear stationary in the skly ,whereas all other stars appear to move from east to west???
The pole star appears to be stationary as it is at the top of the north pole of the earth. Stars do not move or rotate, they remain stationary in their positions ( like the sun ). stars appear to move because of the earth's rotation and revolution. When the Pole star is situated above the axis of the earth it appears to be stationary unlike other stars.
