at which location will the highest altitude of the star polaris be observed
Weegy: Polaris is situated near the north celestial pole, that is, the point in the sky toward which the earth's north pole points. [ It follows that Polaris' observed elevation above the northern horizon is about equal to the observer's north latitude (latitude north of the equator). The highest possible altitude for any sky object is 90 degrees ... the point directly overhead, or the "zenith". Since Polaris' altitude is roughly equal to the observer's north latitude, it appears overhead when the observer's latitude is 90 degrees north, i.e., at the north pole. Read more: ] (More)
