Notice that while longitude is usually measured in degrees, we have a new unit (h or hours) to report RAs. One hour of right ascension (1h) is 15°. Since 24x15°=360°, there are 24h of right ascension around the celestial pole. The reason for this oddity is that the celestial sphere makes one full rotation (24h of RA) in one day (24 hours of time). Thus the celestial sphere advances about 1h of RA in an hour of time. Looking at the stars of north celestial pole region is like looking at a clock face, except the stars rotate about the pole in the opposite direction as the hands on a clock.
