Hi Vance,
   the two bright stars at the right hand side of the big dipper, Merak and Dubhe act as pointers - just extend the line beyond Dubhe until you find a bright star.  That should be Polaris.
Download Stellarium (free) onto a computer to see where things are.
Cheers,

Is there a new user  group that I can get a link to I'm? I'm a little challenged when locating the north star. I'm pretty sure that I can see the big dipper but not the little dipper to get Polaris..
