• Yes. If you imagine the geometry of it, you'll see why -- the stars are so far away that any line drawn from you to the star is essentially parallel to a line drawn from the poles to the star(s). Since the horizon is slightly below this line extended, it cannot block your view... of course, you may have trouble recognizing those stars that close to the horizon, depending on the relative location of their constellations as the Earth rotates.
