All the paths of the stars are cut in half by the horizon, so all stars are up half the time and down half the time, regardless of their position. No star is circumpolar, no matter how close it is to the Celestial Pole. Above: A panoramic view of stars setting on the western horizon, as seen at the Equator in Kenya.

On the left stars circle clockwise around the South Celestial Pole, rising on the left which is east when facing south and setting on the right which is west when facing south. On the right stars circle counterclockwise around the North Celestial Pole, rising on the right which is east when facing north and setting on the left which is west when facing north.
Everywhere, the stars set at right angles to the horizon the horizontal white line , as they all move parallel to the Celestial Equator, which crosses the Horizon at right angles at the Equator. The North Celestial Pole is 35 degrees above the North point on the horizon. The South Celestial Pole is 35 degrees below the South point on the horizon. The Celestial Equator rises at the East point at a 35 degree angle to the vertical, crosses the Meridian the North-South line through the Zenith 35 degrees south of the Zenith and sets at the West point, at a 35 degree angle to the vertical.
Half the Celestial Equator is above the Horizon and half is below it, so stars on the Celestial Equator are up half the time, and down half the time, just as at the Equator where all stars are up half the time, and down half the time. Stars following path 'A' are always up, even though they get higher and lower, because they are closer to the North Celestial Pole than it is to the Horizon.
