The trick is to get moonsets when its dark. This morning the moon set at 7:24 and the sun rose at 8:10, perfect for both to happen in one hour.

Looking at this chart it says the moon will set at 8:45 am and the sun will rise at 7:38 so it won't be a good time to see the moon set as it will already be light outside

I am sure there is a website out there (something like the hurricane charts a while back) which animates the whole thing into a simple graphic, perhaps Google Sky or something. You'll have to wait until I do the early morning surf the Internet thing, or else find it on your own, or perhaps someone else has the time?

I would need to borrow your binoculars to know if I can see you or not, if you held the mirror I could see sunrise from your house, which in Palin terms means your an astronaut.
