Question: Where are the true magnetic poles (north and south) located?

Answer: The magnetic poles of Earth are not the geographic poles of its axis, and apparently their location changes a little from year to year. According to the encyclopedia Encarta, the north magnetic pole lies near Bathurst Island in Canada, about 1,000 miles from the North Pole. The south magnetic pole is near the Adelie Coast of Antarctica, about 1,600 miles from the South Pole.
