First you need to locate the Big Dipper (Ursa Major) constellation. This is a big constellation so it shouldn’t be that hard. Then follow the two stars at the very right hand side of the saucepan shape within it upwards until you reach the bright star at the end of the Little Dipper (Ursa Minor) constellation, this is Polaris.
