_____How to Spot Them First, find your true north - the North Star, or Polaris. It’s at the end of the handle of the Little Dipper constellation. An easy way to find Polaris is to locate the Big Dipper. Its eight stars resemble a long-handled ladle (or "dipper") and appears upside down in sky this time of year. Follow the two stars on the left of the constellation down until you see Polaris, the first star on the handle of the Little Dipper. Let the Stars Guide You If you can find Polaris - the brightest star in both constellations - you’ll always know where North is and be able to reorient yourself. In fact, Polaris guided Europeans when they first sailed across the Atlantic to North America more than five centuries ago. Embrace the Symbolism When the Big Dipper is upright, the Little Dipper is upside down, because their handles extend in opposite directions. This yin and yang symbolizes the undeniable bond between mother and child - you can’t see one without seeing the other.
