I finally spotted Mercury at 05:33 this morning! Sunrise will be at 06:30, so just about 1 hour before sunrise seems to be the right time. I actually glimpsed Mercury a few minutes earlier through the trees. but it cleared the trees at 05:33. As always, once I spotted Mercury with binoculars it seemed really bright and easy to see naked eye. It was much brighter than Procyon, Castor, or Pollux.
