November is the month that meteor showers often ramp up for winter months, so stargazing is usually great during Autumn months. Expect to see more than your average star shows this year, around the new year and into late January as comet Ison travels around our Sun and past Earth.
Starting around Nov. 15th you will be able to see this anticipated comet with the naked eye. Astronomers, including those at NASA, say Comet C/2012 S1 (ISON) has a chance to be one of the brightest comets in history after it reaches perihelion on November 28, 2013.
