Imagine a straight line going from the Little Dipper to the Big Dipper. Following this straight line past the Big Dipper you meet a very bright star. This star is halfway closer to the Big Dipper than the Little Dipper is, and is the very first bright star you meet following this straight line after the Big Dipper. Can anyone tell me what the name of this star (or planet) is?
