Can you identify the Big Dipper?

For me the Big Dipper i seasily recognizable and was the first constellation I learned as a child. But I wonder, is it the same for other people?

  • I always forget the difference between the big and little dipper.  I can always find Orion, though.  Orion's belt is usually the only thing really visible in the city (with all the haze and everything).

  • Yes. Our front yard faces west towards a bunch of trees, but the north side of the street is completely clear so it's always right there when we walk outside at night.
