Moon meets Mercury and Saturn early Monday morning

You may be able to watch the moon block with resonance Saturn transient Mercury Monday (February 28), but it will be quite a challenge.

The three worlds will gather near the southeast horizon as the sun rises. Saturn has a magnitude of 0.7 on the Richter scale, and Mercury is even brighter – 0.1. (For perspective, most people can see the stars down to the size 6 in dark sky conditions.)
