The Little Bear

The constellation Ursa Minor is also known as the little dipper since its shape is similar to a ladle. The reason this constellation doesn’t look like a bear is that you picture bears as having a short, stubby tail. You’re correct. For some reason, this particular bear-in-the-sky has a long tail. At the tip of Ursa minor’s tail is the north star. If you follow the north star and look south, you’ll bump into the head of the bigger bear constellation (Ursa major). Our Ursa minor necklace makes the perfect gift for people who love constellations, star gazing, the imaginative ways of astronomers of the past, and those who think bears look better with tails.
