I was asked this question recently and since I know that sailors use the North star for navigation I was pretty certain I knew all about the North star. Wrooooongggg! Here is an interesting link http://ms.essortment.com/northstarastro_rmdz.htm I was amazed by what I read, basically the North star changes stars every 5,000 years, it is always the brightest in its constellation. You might like to read the above link, it kept my engrossed for quite a time!
