Ursa Major

Star date

Constellation Ursa Major (The Great Bear)

Ursa Major or The Great Bear is one of the 88 constellations modern astronomers have divided the sky into. It's part of the Ursa Major constellation family. Ursa Major is best seen in April (from latitudes +90° to -30°)

This constellation is one of the most recognizable due to the asterism known as the Big Dipper. The Big Dipper represents the rear torso and tail of the Bear. Other stars map out its long nose and legs. In Greek Mythology, the Great Bear represents the nymph Callisto who was transformed into a bear by Hera. Callisto’s son, Arcas, tried to kill Hera, but Zeus intervened and placed them in the sky. Ursa Major contains seven main stars and eight notable stars.
