The Big Dipper and the Little Dipper from the Astronomy Picture of the Day website. I have managed to see the Little Dipper a time or three. We live next to a hill which takes out about half the sky and hills on the horizon all around us. I suspect this shot is enhanced. The Little Dipper has never looked this good and Polaris, the North Star, isn't that bright a star. But, it's a really pretty shot.
