Explain with a diagram how you can locate pole star with the help of the constellation Great Bear (Ursa Major).
Answer:
Locate the two end stars of Ursa Major. Imagine a straight line passing through these stars as shown in the figure alongside. Extend this imaginary line towards the north direction. This line will lead to a star which is not too bright. This is pole star.
