Answer :

Yes the stars appear moving. We can say this due to following reasons:

(i) Stars don’t move from their position in space. They remain fixed at their position.

(ii) They appear moving when we see them from earth.

(iii) We know that the earth rotates about its axis and revolves around the sun. Therefore, the earth is changing its position constantly.

(iv) As we are living on earth, so it seems stationary to us while the stars appear moving. For example- When we are sitting in a train, trees outside the train appear moving.

(v) Due to rotation of earth from east to west. Sun is also a star and we daily see that it rises in the east and sets in the west. It happens due to rotation of the earth about its axis.
