Planetary alignment update

A lovely crisp morning, so I dressed warmly and found a clear horizon: four planets and the Moon were easy to find, but Mercury is still not high enough to be visible. If it's clear at the weekend (when hopefully we'll have the new car, ) I'll drive out to somewhere higher with a clear eastern horizon!

This morning I searched from on high. I think I caught Mercury to the left and lower in the sky than Saturn, still visible at 07:05. Would that be right?

That was probably Venus, Martin: was it very bright? Mercury rises to the east and is generally low still at 6.30...
