    Welcome to the forum Rick.
    Sadly, no. The moon is "new" tonight and even by Friday will be just a sliver... that rises in the morning and sets before dark.

    It's up early in the morning between 5 and 6am.

    Edit - I forgot that it was a new moon today.

    But you could try for Saturn.
