Navigating only by the sun, moon and stars is one of the oldest techniques every survivalist should master

If we find it easy to determine the north during day time, then it should be just as possible during the night too.

Although there is sunlight every day (cloudy days may be tricky though), during the night we are presented with an endless array of stars, the moon and the beautiful Milky way.

Unfortunately, the moon may not be visible during new moon, but if you’re lucky to be out there in a cloudless night, the stars will lead you to your destination.

One of the very useful night sky stars and constellations to look for are the Small Dipper and the Big Dipper, and the most important star in the northern hemisphere – Polaris, or the North Star.

Since it’s virtually fixed on the night sky (only from Earth perspective) it’s one of the best navigational objects, which people have used for centuries.

With or without a GPS, you will still learn an invaluable knowledge and navigate easily without relying on today’s fancy gadgets.
