Learn the skill of star hopping! Discover how to star hop with the Big Dipper and find your way to the North Star, to a lion in the sky, and to two of the brightest stars. We’ll also share a Southern Paiute story about a mountain sheep who climbed a really tall mountain and turned into the North Star.
