Big and Little Dipper, & NEOWISE

The Big Dipper is high in the north during the evening hours. The two outer stars in the bowl of the Big Dipper, called Duhbe and Merak, always point to Polaris, the North Star. Once you find Polaris, and you can find the Little Dipper.

ALSO: a comet called NEOWISE, one of the brightest comets seen in our skies in more than a decade, is moving daily across the Northern Hemisphere before dawn. Beginning around mid-July, the comet will be visible in the northwestern sky after sunset, arcing slowly upward beneath the stars of the Big Dipper.
