The Difference Between True North And Magnetic North

I was today years old when I discovers that true north and magnetic north were two different things.

True north is a fixed geographical point on the globe, the North Pole.

After all, we can’t have Santa up and moving every year if the location were to change.

Think of the riots kicked up by the elf unions!

Magnetic north is the direction that a compass needle points to aligning with Earth’s magnetic field, which changes over time in response to changes in the Earth’s magnetic core.

Happy navigating.
