Great Bear

The number 87 and a dream about a bear played an very important part in finding the love of my live and ultimately coming to America.

Not knowing at the time what it meant, I did some research and discovered that the Ursa Major constellation lies in the northern sky and its name means “the great bear,” or “the larger bear,” in Latin. I was astonished to discover that the number of stars composing the Great Bear is 87, however, only seven of them are visible to the naked eye. (Some websites are more technical, but I am sticking to my story ) To top it all Chicago is located on the -87 longitude.
