Mercury and Saturn getting all up ons... Sept 22 in AM

If you go out in North America before sun rise on Sept. 22, 2009 and look to the East just a few seconds before sunrise. Just a little above the eastern horizon you should see the planets Mercury and Saturn appearing only 3/10ths of a degree apart. This might be difficult to see as they are not very far from the sun. I you have a flat horizon to the east of where you are you might want to give it a try.
