      Yes, you can see stars pretty much everywhere with a clear sky. At the equator, you can pretty much get to see all the stars in the night sky. At the North pole, you will see a completely different portion of the “dome” of stars around the Earth, and the same goes for the South pole.

      Yup, there are stars all around us in all parts of the sky even in the daytime (we just don’t see them because the Sun is so much brighter).
