Attempting to observe the maximum elongations of Venus and Mercury this morning, as described in my article on

At 04:30 I had a lovely view of Venus, Jupiter, and Orion rising in the east. As they rose, so did the fog, gradually obscuring everything below Venus. The fog over the meadows was beautiful, but I never saw the Moon or Mercury.

Maybe tomorrow morning? The Moon will be gone, but Mercury will still be there.
