The familiar Big Dipper is much more than just one of the easy-to-spot sky pictures. Its mythological associations extend back to prehistory, it is a signpost for travelers, and the actual stars in the Dipper hold an astronomical surprise. In this week’s Awesome Astronomy video, science educator Ron Palumbo introduces us to the true character of the Great Bear.
