This video demonstrates how the rotation of the Earth causes the rotation of the sky and creation of startrails around the north celestial pole (the north direction of the Earth axis of rotation) as long-exposure photos record. Polaris, or the North Star, is very near to the center of the rotation. Kwon, O Chul - AstroKorea.com/kwon572
