Q: Is the first star that we see at night the same as the last one that we see with the naked eye? A: This is a question you can answer for yourself with your very own eyes. It won't even take that much time or effort. Watch the sky at dusk and dawn for yourself. Try to note the patterns of stars around the first and last stars you see so you can tell if the stars are the same. Hint: The stars move almost but not quite exactly the same speed as the sun in the sky. The stars appear to rotate around the earth's poles.
