First Try Lunar Alignment with Ephemeris App

My neighbors have a moon wind chime that I noticed when I was photographing planets in pre-dawn twilight. Because of the way the balcony is positioned, you can see right through to the East. I would LOVE to get a photo of the moon silhouetting the moon wind chime, or a crescent moon at dawn next to the moon wind chime.

Out of curiosity I opened the The Photographer's Ephemeris app () and saw that the waning gibbous moon would be rising in generally the right area. The problem is, I'm not sure how far above the horizon it needs to be to align with the wind chime - so I'm not sure where it needs to rise exactly.

These photos are from last night. The alignment isn't too bad for a last-minute chance.
