    This is very close to solar conjunction Bjorn, and the declination approaches
    that of the Sun, so rather low in sky for you. I doubt it would be
    possible at solar elongation less than 40 degrees. See Bill Gray's ephemeris at
    http://www.projectpluto.com/j002e3.htm or try the HORIZON system at JPL
    Visibility depends rather strongly on one's longitude.
