Guiding people on their route or path to find their destination using the sun, moon, and stars goes back to ancient times. The Greeks were amongst the first to navigate using Ursa Minor, one of the most important constellations used in celestial navigation.
Ursa Minor, known as the Little Bear, is a constellation in the Northern Sky and has traditionally been essential for navigation. The most important star in Ursa Minor is the North Star, named Polaris and is the nearest star to the North Celestial Pole. If you can spot Polaris, you can always tell which way is north.
