Q 12) Explain how you can locate the Pole Star with the help of Ursa Major.

Solution 12:

We can look for two stars at one end of the Ursa Major constellation that appears like a quadrilateral. Imagine a straight line passing through these stars and then extend this imaginary line about five times the distance between those two stars in the north direction. This line will lead to a Pole star that is not too bright.
