The location of stars in the sky relative to one another do not appear naked eye to change, and, as a result, stars are often considered to be fixed in position. Many unwitting stargazers incorrectly assume that each star has its own permanent home in the night-time sky. In reality, though, stars are always moving, but because of the tremendous distances between the stars themselves and stars to Earth, the changes are barely discernible here on Earth. An Example of a rather fast moving star demonstrates why this misconception prevails; it takes around 200 years for Bernard’s star, a relatively rapidly moving star, to move a distance in the skies equal to the diameter of the Earth’s moon. When the apparently negligible movement of the stars is contrasted with the movement of the planets, the stars are seeming motionless.
