Elevation over the northern horizon, Science

Locate Polaris, the North star, and comment on it's elevation over the Northern horizon.  Using the keyboard controls (J, K and L keys), fast forward the program 6 - 12 hours and comment on Polaris' motion (if any).  Where are the planets in relation to Polaris?  On a clear night over the next couple of weeks, go outside after dark and see if you can locate the planets that you've identified [in Stellarium] as well as the brightest stars & constellations.   The stars & constellations of spring & summer are now becoming prominent.  If you have a pair of binoculars, it would be nice to conatin an observation using them as well.
