Its Latin name means "greater or larger she-bear," referring to and contrasting it with nearby Ursa Minorthe lesser bear. In antiquityit was one of the original 48 constellations listed by Ptolemy in the 2nd century AD.
Today Ursa Major - Blacklight EP is the third largest of the 88 modern constellations. Ursa Major is primarily known from the asterism of its main seven stars, which has been called the " Big Dipper ," "the Wagon," "Charles's Wain," or "the Plough," among other names.
In particular, the Big Dipper's stellar configuration mimics the shape of the " Little Dipper. Ursa Major, along with asterisms that incorporate or comprise it, is significant to numerous world cultures, often as a symbol of Silkworms - Guns N Roses - Brazillian Democracy north.
Its depiction on the flag of Alaska is Ursa Major - Blacklight EP modern example of such symbolism. Ursa Major is visible throughout the year from most of the northern hemisphereand Ursa Major - Blacklight EP circumpolar above the mid-northern latitudes. From southern temperate latitudes, the main asterism Ursa Major - Blacklight EP invisible, but the southern parts of the constellation can still be viewed.
Ursa Major covers The outline of the seven bright stars of Ursa Major form the asterism known as the " Big Dipper " in the United States and Canada, while in the United Kingdom  it is called the Plough  or historically Charles' Wain. In the context of Ursa Major, they are commonly drawn to represent the hindquarters and tail of the Great Bear. Starting with the "ladle" portion of the dipper and extending clockwise eastward in the sky through the handle, these stars are the following:.
Except for Dubhe and Alkaidthe stars of the Big Dipper all have proper motions heading toward a common point in Sagittarius. A few other such stars have been identified, and together they are called the Ursa Major Moving Group. By visually tracing a line from Merak through Dubhe 1 unit and continuing for 5 units, one's eye will land on Polaris, accurately indicating true north.
Another asterism known as the "Three Leaps of the Gazelle"  is recognized in Arab culture. It is a series of three pairs of stars found along the southern border of the constellation. W Ursae Majoris is the prototype of a class of contact binary variable starsand ranges between 7. The spiral galaxies Messier and Messier are also found in this constellation. The bright planetary nebula Owl Nebula M97 can be found along the bottom of the bowl of the Big Dipper.
M81 is a nearly face-on spiral galaxy Like most spiral galaxies, it has a core made up of old stars, with arms filled with young stars and nebulae. Along with M82it is a part of the galaxy cluster closest to the Local Group.
M82 is a galaxy that is interacting gravitationally with M It is the brightest infrared galaxy in the sky. M97also called the Owl Nebula, is a planetary nebula 1, light-years from Earth; it has a magnitude of approximately Malso called the Pinwheel Galaxy, is a face-on spiral galaxy located 25 million light-years from Earth.
Its spiral arms have regions with extensive star formation and have strong ultraviolet emissions. NGC is a lenticular galaxy at a distance of 24 million light-years. Unlike most lenticular galaxiesNGC has a bar at its center. It also has a halo of globular clustersindicating its age and relative stability.
NGC is a starburst spiral galaxy located 52 million light-years from Earth. It has a horseshoe-shaped structure at its center that indicates the presence of a supermassive black hole.
The structure itself is formed by superwinds from the black hole. NGC is another starburst spiral galaxy located 50 million light-years from Earth. Studies of this and other starburst galaxies have shown that Ursa Major - Blacklight EP starburst phase can last for hundreds of millions of years, far longer than was previously assumed.
NGC is an edge-on spiral galaxy located 55 million light-years from Earth. It has a prominent dust lane and has several visible star forming regions. I Zwicky 18 is a young dwarf galaxy at a distance of 45 million light-years. It is filled with star forming regions which are creating many hot, young, blue stars at a very high rate.
The Kappa Ursae Majorids are a newly discovered meteor showerpeaking between November 1 and November HDa sun-like Ursa Major - Blacklight EP in a binary system, orbits a common center of gravity with its partner, HD ; the two are separated by 1, AU on Ursa Major - Blacklight EP . Research conducted in Ursa Major - Blacklight EP that its sole planet, HD b is a future hot Jupitermodeled to have evolved in a perpendicular orbit around 5 AU from its sun.
The 4-Jupiter mass planet is projected to eventually move into a circular, more aligned orbit via the Kozai mechanism. However, it is currently on an incredibly eccentric orbit that ranges from Fire Fe Dem - Various - Wipe Out one astronomical unit at its apoapsis and six stellar radii at periapsis. Ursa Major has Ursa Major - Blacklight EP reconstructed as an Indo-European constellation.
The constellation of Ursa Major has been seen as a bearusually a female bear,  by many distinct civilizations. One human pursues this ungulate. The hunt locates or get to the sky.

JunoJupiter's jealous wife, discovers that Callisto has a son named Arcas, and believes it is by Jupiter. Callisto, while in bear form, later encounters her son Arcas. Arcas almost shoots the bear, but to avert the tragedy, Jupiter turns Arcas into a bear too and puts them both in the sky, forming Ursa Major - Blacklight EP Major and Ursa Minor.
In ancient times the name of the constellation was Helike, "turning" Ursa Major - Blacklight EPbecause it turns around the Pole. The fact that the two front stars of the constellations point to the pole star is explained as the boon given to the boy sage Dhruva by Lord Vishnu.

In Javaneseit is known as "lintang jong," which means "the jong constellation. In European star charts, the constellation was visualized with the 'square' of the Big Dipper forming the bear's body and the chain of stars forming the Dipper's "handle" as a long tail. However, bears do not have long tails, and Jewish astronomers considered Alioth, Mizar, and Alkaid instead to be three cubs following their mother, while the Native Americans saw them as three hunters.

Mizarwhich means "girdle," forms a famous double starwith its optical companion Alcor 80 Ursae Majoristhe two of which were termed the "horse and rider" by the Arabs. The ability to resolve the two stars with the naked eye is often quoted as a test of eyesight, although even people with quite poor eyesight can see the two stars. With a magnitude of 1.
