Timelapse footage of stars circling the North Star (Polaris) in Yosemite National Park, California, USA. The North Star marks the location of the north celestial pole. As the Earth spins on its axis the north celestial pole remains fixed. The stars seen from the Northern Hemisphere appear to rotate around it, moving across the sky from East to West. Filmed in November.
