Morning Glory - Moon, Mercury, Mars and Jupiter
You can start observing as early as 5:30 if you have a nice level horizon, and the sky will be pretty light by 6:30, so it will be hard to see Mars. So you have about an hours window in the morning to see this lineup at its best.
Looking on the 22nd will be pretty good too. The waning crescent Moon, Mercury Jupiter and Mars are all in a nice line.
