Ursa Major

21. May 2020

Do You recognize this constellation?

 

Obviously, many of us think You can see the Big Dipper. Sure, You’re right, but it’s not a constellation. The Big Dipper is just asterism (like others) which helps us to orientate in the night sky. It’s a part of the Ursa Major (Great Bear) constellation surrounded with airglow on the photo. And it’s even a circumpolar constellation (doesn’t set during whole Year from Northern hemisphere).
