Interesting conjunction - 9-Nov

If anyone is awake in the early hours of Monday morning, have a look out for this conjunction in the East:

The red circle shows the field of view with my 7x50 binoculars.
And it should be a doddle to find - just get the Moon in your field of view!
Maybe there will be a gap between the clouds clearing and the fog rolling in?

If you manage to see it, please post a reply to this message.
