Caption: Ursa Major constellation. This star map shows the northern hemisphere constellation of Ursa Major (the Great Bear) as published by the German astronomer Johann Elert Bode (1747-1826) in 1805. The publication is known as the Bode Star Atlas. Below Ursa Major is the constellation of Leo Minor, with other constellations surrounding these two. All these constellations are represented by mythological figures. Within Ursa Major is the famous asterism known as the Big Dipper or Plough, used by many cultures to locate the North Celestial Pole.
