                       COMET AND NOVA SECTION

Comet and nova Search Areas:  Part I.  From Declination 0° to 90°N.
       The number on the circumference are hours of Right Ascension,
and each small dash represents 20 minutes of time.  Small numbers
along the 00h and 12h lines are degrees of declination.  The purpose
of this chart is to enable the observer to find the range of his
area in Right Ascension and Declination.  The observer should make
a copy of his area from a star atlas showing stars to at least sixth
magnitude.  Novae are most likely to appear in areas 1 to 175, while
comets may appear in any area.

                       COMET AND NOVA SECTION

Comet and Nova Search Areas:  Part II.  From Declination 0° to 50°S.
       Please refer to Part I for explanation of charts.
       To be strictly correct, Right Ascension should be anti-clock-
wise on chart II, but since the purpose of the chart is to enable
the observer to find the position of his area, it was felt that it
would be best if the numbering appeared to progress in the same
direction on both charts.
       Since the sky south of declination 50°S. cannot be seen from
Canada, no areas south of declination are given.
