Framed Photo - Big Dipper Over Pines
"Big Dipper Rising"
Back To Photo List

- The stars of the night sky have been divided and mapped since ancient times. The results of this mapping are the imaginative shapes and legends of the constellations.

This photo of the constellation Ursa Major, better known as The Big Dipper clearly shows the main "naked eye" stars that make up the shape of "the dipper" enlarged in their true color.

The Big Dipper is actually just the tail section of Usa Major, "The Great Bear", which is a very large constellation in the Northern sky. -
