Do all the stars in the sky move? Explain.

 

Answer

No, the stars in the sky do not move.

Since Earth Rotates from West to East direction, 

the stars (except North Pole) appear to move from East to West direction. 

 

(Just like when we sit in moving train,it appears that all the nearby trees and buildings are moving backwards, but they are actually not moving)
