Collection: North Star

The North Star or 'Polaris' is a star in the northern constellation of Ursa Minor (also known as the little bear). It is the brightest star in the constellation and is readily visible to the naked eye at night. The North Star or Pole Star is famous for holding nearly still in our sky while the entire northern sky moves around it. The position of the star lies less than a degree away from the north celestial pole making it the current northern pole star.
