The Earth's rotation is the rotation of the planet Earth around its own axis. The North Pole, also known as the Geographic North Pole or Terrestrial North Pole, is the point in the Northern Hemisphere where the Earth's axis of rotation meets its surface. The South Pole is the other point where the Earth's axis of rotation intersects its surface, in Antarctica.

The Earth rotates from the west towards the east. As viewed from North Star or polestar Polaris, the Earth turns counter-clockwise.
