I tthink mercury should have been near by as well, though probably not visible by eye

I was on my last night shift this morning.
Checking with Stellarium I think I saw Mercury, Venus, Moon and Saturn just above the moon. Pretty well lined up, and nice and clear. No camera though :-(

They are all nicely placed for this week, with Venus and Saturn gradually seperating from mercury and the moon doing its own thing
