One way to find Polaris, the North Star, is to look for the "Big Dipper" and then look at the two stars forming the edge of the "bowl" on the dipper opposite the handle (these are Merak and Dubhe). Look straight along the line formed by the two stars "up" from the dipper about twice the distance that separates the two stars and you should see it. It will generally be in a northern part of the sky. The North Star is also the only one that doesn't move through the night. All other stars will appear to rotate around it.
Another way is to locate the Little Dipper (Ursa Minor) and Polaris will be the star at the end of the handle.
The usage of the north star, or Polaris, is to find which way you are facing. If you are facing in the direction of it, you are facing north. If you are facing the opposite direction of the north star, you are facing south. If you are facing left of the north star, you are facing east. If you are facing right of the north star, you are facing west.
Yes.Locate the North Star (Polaris) in the night sky. The North Star is the last star in the handle of the Little Dipper constellation. If you have trouble finding it, find the Big Dipper. The two lowest stars in the Big Dipper (the outermost stars of the cup of the dipper) form a straight line that "points" to the North Star. You may also find the constellation Cassiopeia, which is always opposite the Big Dipper. The North Star is located about midway between the central star of Cassiopeia and the Big Dipper (see figure).
