The stars appear to move in two different ways. The first way is caused by the Earth's rotation on its axis which causes the stars (and the Sun and the Moon) to rise in the east and set in the west. The second way stars appear to move is caused by the Earth's orbit around the sun, which causes any given star to rise earlier and earlier each night.
