Ursa Major, the Great Bear, is the third largest constellation in the night sky. It contains the most famous asterism, “The Big Dipper.” An asterism is a group of stars within a constellation that are notable in and of themselves, but do not complete the constellation.
If you are viewing from the northern hemisphere, try to find both constellations in your night sky on an evening with exceptionally good visibility. On any evening when at least some stars are visible, try to find the asterism, the Big Dipper. Enjoy!!
