Ursa Major and Minor (the Big and Little Dippers), Jay. The Big Dipper is low in the horizon next to the barn. Follow the two stars that form the front of the scoop of the big dipper up along the barn, leading your eye to to Polaris, the North Star. That’s the end of the handle of the little dipper (which is harder to see). The little dipper’s handle has an opposite curve, and the little dipper pours into the big dipper. The bowl of the little dipper isn’t as clearly defined. You can sight off of the upper left white corner of the barn, and move to between 10:00 and 11:00, and you’ll see the two outer bowl stars of the littler dipper in line.
