AM or PM, look to the skies at 6:30

6:30 is not too early to wake up and see Mars & Saturn – the early dawn’s light can actually help as it washes out most/all of the stars so “you can’t miss” the planets.

12 hours later, a rare chance to glimpse Mercury, if you have a clear line of sight to the horizon.  It’s always next to the Sun but it’s in a great position, with Jupiter & Venus on the ecliptic to help line it up, as long as you time it just right – immediately after the Sun sets.

Look West at 6:30 AM or PM
