November Targets

Here’s my list of objects to find during the month of November. I am around 35 degrees north, so you might have to adjust the times depending upon your location. The new moon is at 22:08:20, 13 Nov 2012 UTC, so anytime around the 13th is a good day to view. Leave a comment if you have an additional target to try and spot!
