On the morning of Friday July 25 and Saturday July 26 respectively, the crescent Moon is close to Venus and Mercury respectively, making for a nice morning view. Mercury is very close to the horizon, so you will need a clear , level horizon for a chance of catching Mercury and the Moon together on Saturday. Friday mornings Venus and Moon pairing will be much easier to see as they rise into the twilight.
