By 8:39 p.m., civil twilight is almost over, and you should be able to see the brightest stars. Arcturus is almost overhead, only 17 degrees from the zenith in the southwest direction.
Mercury and Regulus are low in the west with Regulus only 4 degrees above Mercury.
Mercury was at its greatest elongation last Wednesday, and now is circling closer to the Earth, getting dimmer each day as its crescent phase narrows. It will be visible in the twilight until the end of the month.

If you get clouded out try again on Sunday morning. The Moon still be hanging around the gas giant but will have moved on its other side.
