Most everyone is familiar with the North Star.
After all, it’s been guiding mariners across the seas and travelers across the continents for ages.
And if you were paying attention in science class you probably know the official name of the North Star is Polaris.
But here’s something you probably don’t know: Polaris isn’t just the one star that we see when we look up at the North Star…
It’s actually (at least) three stars that make up the Polaris star system.
