The Earth's rotation is the cause of the 36. (1) daily motion of the Sun, Moon, stars and planets from east to west 37. (2) change in constellations over the course of the year 38. (3) Moon's motion around the celestial sphere (with respect to the stars) 39. 40. The daily motion of the sky causes the stars to rotate around the 41. (1) celestial poles 42. (2) ecliptic poles 43. (3) celestial equator 44. 45. The daily motion of stars seen at the North Pole is 46. (1) parallel to the horizon, neither rising nor setting 47. (2) perpendicular to the horizon when rising and setting 48. (3) at an angle of 23 1/2 degrees to the horizon when rising and setting...
