More window observing! At first I could only see Mars and Saturn, then Venus rose in the southeast. There were thin streamers of cloud close to the horizon, making Mercury impossible to see with the naked eye. Finally I got my 10x50s, and was able to spot it 4.5 degrees below and to the left of Venus. By then Jupiter was in hazy cloud to the west.
