This month’s asterism is called the “Broken Engagement Ring”. It is located near the bowl of the Big Dipper. It is made up of a semi-circle of stars, about 15 minutes in size.
The bright star in the upper left, at 7.4 magnitude, could be considered the diamond of the ring, but the lower right section of the ring is missing. Using your imagination the 3 bright stars to the lower right could be considered the “missing stars” of the “Broken Engagement Ring”.
