ursa minor

Ursa Minor (little bear) is also called the “little dipper” and looks like a smaller version of the "big dipper" that makes up the body of Ursa Major. But with a slightly more bendy handle. It is actually pretty hard to pick out unless you know exactly what you are looking for. The key is that the Pole Star is the tip of its tail. Here is how the dots join up - here it is the other way up from the picture above - it revolves around the end of its tail so you need to get used to spotting it any way up!: img: by claremagdalen
