The Plough or the Big Dipper is an asterism of seven stars that has been recognized as a distinct grouping in many cultures from time immemorial. The component stars are the seven brightest of the formal constellation Ursa Major.

北斗星由七颗亮星组成,形似斗勺,易于辨认,故有此名。它的勺头两颗星叫“指极星”,指向北极星,可以帮助我们在夜间辨认方向。

按现代国际星名的命名体系,北斗星属于大熊星座。

  北斗星由七颗恒星即天枢、天璇、天玑、天权、玉衡、开阳、摇光组成。先民们把这七星联系起来,想象成为古代舀酒的斗形,天枢、天璇、天玑、天权组成斗身,古曰魁、斗魁;玉衡、开阳、摇光组成为斗柄,古曰构。天璇、天枢相连成直线并延伸约五倍的距离,就可以找到北极星,构成北极星区。

The night lighting of modern urban civilization has completely obliterated the natural glory of a star-filled night for most Canadians. It is now a fact of life that the only time many city or town dwellers ever see the stars is while on vacation in "cottage country". However, even there, local lights at night are now so pervasive that the stars are being beaten back ever farther into the wilderness. In a period in our history when unprecedented knowledge is being gathered by space probes and orbital telescopes, it is ironic that the average person has essentially lost the opportunity to simply look up at the night sky and experience the vastness of space. This is why the concept of a Dark Sky Reserve is an idea whose time has come.

Horseshoe Falls

The Niagara Falls are voluminous waterfalls on the Niagara River, straddling the international border between the Canadian province of Ontario and the U.S. state of New York. The falls are 17 miles (27 km) north-northwest of Buffalo, New York and 75 miles (120 km) south-southeast of Toronto, Ontario, between the twin cities of Niagara Falls, Ontario, and Niagara Falls, New York.

Niagara Falls is composed of two major sections separated by Goat Island: Horseshoe Falls, the majority of which lies on the Canadian side of the border, and American Falls on the American side. The smaller Bridal Veil Falls are also located on the American side, separated from the main falls by Luna Island.
