S8 L114 – Constellation Spotting

          My brother and I went outside to get some wood for the fireplace one night, and when we were nearly done, my brother remembered the assignment and got me looking.  He kept finding the “little dipper” in every little star cluster, up until he said he found something that looked like a “tail.”  This got my attention, and I asked him to point it out.  He did so, and I realized that it was the tail of the constellation Draco.  Using this I located both of the Ursa (major and minor) and finished the assignment.
