Can you spot Ursa Major, Polaris, Cassiopeia, Betelgeuse, and Orion in the photo above? Know which way is North? If not, here’s a quick 15 minute drill that will teach you how to recognize a few constellations and navigate at night (assuming you live in the northern hemisphere).
For you city folk, this could come in handy if:
- you’re trying to get to a late night party
- you become disoriented
- the battery dies in that Google Maps enabled iPhone we’ve been blabbering about for the last couple weeks
