Solar system exploration in November includes flybys of Saturn's moons, a comet, and the next-to-last launch of a space shuttle before the shuttle program ends. In addition, on November 1 and 29 before sunrise, the waning crescent Moon will be close to asteroid 3 Juno. In fact, by observing the Moon and using some of the stars in the background for reference, you may notice after your November 1 viewing that the Moon returns to the same location relative to asteroid 3 Juno 28 days later on November 29; however, its waning crescent phase appearance is not the same as it was on November 1.
