The Argument

The north star (Polaris) cannot be seen farther than about 2° south latitude. Using FE measurements (12,500 miles from the north pole to the ice wall or dome, 3,100 mile Polaris altitude), neither pole star (Polaris/Sigma Octantis) should ever be visibly lower than 14° above the horizon.
