I am located almost directly above the earth’s North Pole. I do not appear to “rise” or “set” but seem almost motionless while the other stars of the northern sky appear to to revolve around me. Locate me in the sky and follow me, and you will be heading north. I helped sailors and explorers (like Christopher Columbus) navigate across the Atlantic Ocean into uncharted territory, and I will also keep you safe and guide you through the night.
Polaris lights up with a squeeze of his left foot! This bright star will expand your children’s interest in space, astronomy and science. The North Star is a great gift for anyone of any age who loves space.
Measures 9 x 6 x 9 inches.
