Some stars never “set”

Did you know there are some stars that are always in the sky?  They are called circumpolar stars, and they are up even in the daytime when you can’t see them.  The fact they never rise or set has to do with how the earth is tilted, how it rotates, and how it revolves around the sun. You can find more information about circumpolar stars here.  If you want to look for our circumpolar stars tonight, it won’t be the best night for it.  We’re still fighting some clouds outside that will hide the stars from your view.
