I will be your guide in the night sky!

I am a yellow supergiant...the brightest star in the constellation Ursa Minor (a/k/a Little Bear or Little Dipper). 

I am located almost directly above the Earth’s North Pole, so I am also called the Pole Star or the North Star. I do not appear to “rise” or “set” at night but seem almost motionless while the other stars of the northern sky revolve around me. I'm only the 46th brightest star, so the best way to find me is to follow the "Pointer Stars" in the Big Dipper, which will lead you right to me. Once you locate me in the sky, walk toward me, and you will be heading north. I helped sailors and explorers find their way across the Atlantic Ocean into uncharted territory, and I will also keep you safe and headed in the right direction.   

Because the Earth’s axis changes gradually over time, I wasn’t always the Pole Star, and in about 12,000 years, Vega, in the constellation Lyra, will replace me as the new Pole Star.  Until then, however, you can count on me to be your Guide in the Night Sky.

Note: The Two Little Stars, Polaris Ab & B are sold separately (CB017).

Even I was surprised

I read and understood that these buddies were soft and cuddly, but I was still shocked and just how soft and inviting this star was to hold and when I pushed the button to light it up, the reaction of everyone around was priceless.


I recently purchased Polaris at the NASA gift shop and I have immediately fallen in love with it. The light is much brighter than i expected but that is fitting for it.
