Pointing at Polaris, Bright Pre-dawn Planets, and an Enticing Evening Moon!

(Polaris, the Pole Star, is an easy double star visible in backyard telescopes. Look for a small companion near Polaris (yellow arrow) and then trace out the rest of the dim diamond ring asterism. Since the sky revolves around Polaris, the ring of stars can sit in any direction from Polaris.)
(Polaris, the North Star, in the constellation Ursa Minor (the Little Bear)).
(Close approach of the Moon to the bright, orange-ish star Aldebaran.)
