Tolmosoff Posted June 18, 2009 Share Posted June 18, 2009 So how many dippers is in our sky ?. WHAT only one dipper ?????. Wrong !!! again. There is two dippers in our sky. One is the Big Dipper where the end points to our Polar Star that never moves only up and down somewhat. The big dipper is in our northern hemisphere but in observing our sky I see the ( Lesser Dipper ). And that is in our low southern sky. So in navigating our ocean in true east and west direction I can navigate between the big dipper and the Lesser dipper when plying the ocean. I am a retired Blue Diamond Almond grower all my life. I am calling the southern Lesser dipper. ( THE FARMERS DIPPER ) I think some astronomer should write that down. So when you go out at nite to see the big dipper and then look to the opposite southern sky and you will see ( The Farmers Dipper ). Look it over its very interesting. John T.
