Ursa Minor (the Smaller Bear) is almost entirely represented
by its major asterism, the Little Dipper, which starts at Polaris (the
North Star) then swings down and to the right.
Polaris is very close to the North Celestial Pole, around which the
stars of the northern hemisphere appear to circulate as a result of the
rotation of the Earth. The
two brightest stars at lower right (Kochab and Pherkad)
represent the front of the bowl of
the Little Dipper, and are sometimes called the "Guardians of the Pole."
2 UMi is actually in Cepheus. "286"
is HR 286, "1107 is HR 1107 (which is also in Cepheus).
