Thuban is not a particularly bright star, but it holds a special place in the hearts of stargazers. That’s because Thuban was the Pole Star some 5,000 years ago, when the Egyptians were building the pyramids.

helical model of our solar system: useful visualizations but demonstrably wrong in its theoretical framework

Polaris, the north star, sits within half a degree of the north celestial pole, this was not always so. Earth's rotational axis undergoes a slow, 26,000-year wobble, known as precession, around the perpendicular to its orbit around the Sun, as a result of which the position of the sky's rotational pole, around which all the stars seem to go, constantly changes. Around the time of the Greek poet Homer, Kochab was the north pole star. Among the best ever, however, was Thuban, which was almost…

In about 14, 000 years, the star Vega will be the "pole star," the stae located above the northern end of Earth's rotation axis, which wobbles as it spins.  One rotational wobble takes approximately 26,000 years causing the pole star to change.
