Why do they appear to move in this direction?
The stars appear to move in the sky. It appears because of the motion of the Earth. Earth is spinning around its own axis and also moves around the Sun. As a result, the stars also appear to move from east to west. A star which rises in the east in the evening, sets in the west in the early morning. All the stars do not appear to move. For example, pole star does not appear to move because it is situated in the direction of earth’s axis.
