Draw a circle and divide it into four equal parts by drawing two lines through the center. Put a star in the center of the circle to represent the North Star.

In each of the four parts of the circle draw the Big Dipper, making sure that the pointer stars are in line with the North Star in each drawing. Number the drawings.

At night, hold the paper circle so that drawing 1 is in the
same position as the Big Dipper in the sky. Mark the time on the paper beside the Dipper. Predict at what time the Dipper will be in position 2, then check the prediction.

Where will the Big Dipper will be in the daytime? Will it be in a place where people in Liechtenstein can enjoy it?

Is the Big Dipper visible every night to those lucky enough to live in California?
