    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 or try the HORIZON system at JPL
    Visibility depends rather strongly on one's longitude.
