can we see pole star from any part of the world?
Dr Swasti Sinha
a year ago
A pole star is a prominent and visible star that is approximately aligned with the Earth's axis of rotation. It means it's a star whose apparent position is close to one of the celestial poles, and which lies approximately directly overhead when viewed from the Earth's North Pole. The pole star or Polaris is directly above the north pole of the earth and stays there all of the time. All other stars appear to move slowly from east to west as the earth rotates, but the pole star stays stopped at due north. We can't see the pole star at all if we are south of the equator, very close to the equator or in the southern hemisphere. The pole star or Polaris is directly above the north pole of the earth and stays there all of the time.

First thanks for the reply Mam, but out of curiosity how come the people in southern hemisphere judge the direction at night if the pole star is not visible to them.

There are several methods to locate ditections. I will describe a few of them... 1.By locating the crescent moon. The Northern Hemisphere is the portion of the earth that’s north of the equator, while the Southern Hemisphere is comprised of the area below the equator. All of North America and Europe are in the Northern Hemisphere. The northernmost portion of South America, two-thirds of Africa, and most of Asia are also in the Northern Hemisphere. Australia, Antarctica, the southern third of Africa, approximately 90 percent of South America, and some southern islands off the coast of Asia are in the Southern Hemisphere. This method for finding your direction only works if the moon is in either the waxing crescent or waning crescent phases, which occur approximately seven days in each calendar month. The crescent phases typically occur at the beginning and end of the month. If you’re not sure whether there will be a crescent moon on a given evening, there are a number of online calendars that provide the lunar phases for each month. Just do a search for “moon phases calendar” or “lunar phases calendar.” Draw an imaginary line from the moon’s “horns” to the horizon. With your gaze fixed firmly on the moon, image a line from the two points of the crescent that tracks all the way down to the bottom of the skyline. If you are in the Northern Hemisphere, the point where the line meets the horizon is roughly south. In the Southern Hemisphere, the point where the line meets the horizon is roughly north. If you are having trouble following the imaginary line down to the horizon, it may help to hold a stick through the tips of the crescent moon as a guide. 2. Evaluate the trees for their heaviest side. Trees are rarely symmetrical, so one side always seems to have more growth than another. Because plants need sunlight to grow, the side that gets the most sunlight will usually appear heavier. In the Northern Hemisphere, the sun spends most its time in the southern part of the sky, so the denser side of the tree will usually be facing south. In the Southern Hemisphere, the heavier portion of the tree usually points north. In order to accurately decide which side of the tree is the heaviest, you should walk all the way around it a few times. If you only look at one or two sides, you may not be able to tell where the tree is most dense. It’s easiest to use this method with lone trees in an open field. In a wooded area, trees compete for sunlight, so it’s not as obvious which direction they’re growing in. 3. Look for moss on trees. In many cases, moss tends to grow on the side of the trees that is most shaded. In the Northern Hemisphere, that means you would usually find moss on the side of the tree that points north. In the Southern Hemisphere, you would typically find moss on the side of the tree that points south. It’s important to keep in mind that other factors can create shady conditions that would encourage moss to grow on a certain side of a tree. Trees that are shaded by other trees in a wooded area and trees that grow on slopes may throw off your direction. 4. By tracking the movement of or location of sun and moon both ..moving from east to west.. 5. Magnetic compass
