Hi, the north star is also a double sun also it has a small star next to it also. This knowlege I have not used in over 15 or more years but who knows may come in handy. Basically the northstar is on an axis of the earths spin, there is nothing north about it its just in the centre of earth's spin as it turns. Take for example a record player the hole in the middle looks like its still when it moves.

The North Star is almost directly above the Earth's North Pole, which is one end of the axis aroud which the Earth spins. That's why the North Star does not appear to move as much as the other stars during the night. It will never set nor rise like the other stars do during the night.
