The familiar outline of the Big Dipper asterism is visible to the left of the steeple of this old schoolhouse preserved in Bodie Ghost Town.

On this full moon night, follow the two "pointer" stars at the right side of the dipper's cup up and to the right to Polaris, the North Star. Just visible to its left are the other stars of of the Little Dipper against the top edge of the frame.
