They are interesting. Like for example:

As it searched for signs of exoplanets, TESS recently discovered that Thuban undergoes eclipses.

That’s because Thuban is actually a pair of stars. The larger star of the pair is more than four times bigger than the sun and 70% hotter, with a surface temperature of about 17,500 degrees Fahrenheit. Its partner is five times fainter than the larger star in the pair and about half its size.

The two stars orbit one another at an average distance of about 38 million miles and complete a full circle every 51 days. Astronomers had never found any evidence that the stars eclipse one another in those orbital paths until now.

It would be strange if the DE somehow knew this....

At any rate, the premise of the OP is can we use the alignment of the descending passage to the pole star which at this time would have been Thuban.
