Although technically in the predawn sky, Mercury is too near the Sun to be easily seen, rising in the southeast less than an hour before dawn. As it gradually swings around to the far side of our star as seen from Earth, Mercury's angular separation from the Sun in the sky shrinks, and the smallest planet disappears into the glow, passing superior conjunction, when it's located behind the Sun, on January 29. It emerges from the glare in late-February for a brief appearance in the evening sky, setting an hour after the Sun, reaching greatest eastern elongation on the 26th and is separated from the Sun by 18 degrees. It quickly retreats back into the twilight, washed from view by the glow as inferior conjunction (located between Earth and the Sun) occurs on March 14.
The Moon's passes near Mercury will likely be too close to the Sun to be observable, occurring very low in the east on the morning of January 4, almost directly against the Sun on February 4 and definitely not visible, and on March 7, when both are very low in the west less than an hour after sunset, perhaps visible...but likely only to experienced skywatchers.
