astroBASICS is free and open to the public
This month we look at the problems of summer astronomy
and an in-depth look at The Pole Star
The Pole Star is well known by all and often misunderstood by the public at large.

But I am constant as the northern star,
Of whose true-fix’d and resting quality
There is no fellow in the firmament.

Julius Caesar. Act III.

File:Polaris alpha ursae minoris.jpgWell Caesar was not to know the Pole star is not fix’d or even fixed. And certainly not constant.
