Ursa Major

The Big Dipper is actually just part of a bigger constellation called Ursa Major, or the Great Bear. In Greek mythology, the God Zeus had fallen in love with the maiden Callisto, and got her pregnant. When the child was born, as revenge, Zeus' wife Hera turned Callisto into a bear. Callisto wandered the forest for years in bear form, until a by chance meeting with her son, Arcas, who at that moment raised his spear to strike at the bear. Zeus stepped in, grabbed both Callisto and her son and threw them into the heavens. Callisto as the Great Bear and Arcas as Bootes the Herdsman or Ursa Minor - Little Bear - depending on the story
