Atul came to know from his father that pole star is the only star in the sky that does not move as the night passes. But his father did not tell him the reason. Can you help him?

Stars appear moving because of earth’s rotation. But pole star is located in direction of earth’s axis. So there is no effect of rotation on the angle of vision between earth and the pole star. Hence it does not move as night passes.
