Will the Zodiacal Light also be visible at the same time?

Something to keep in mind about this event is that 2 of the planets, Uranus and Neptune, require a telescope to see. And Jupiter and Mercury will be so close to the horizon as morning twilight is happening that you will need optical aid for them as well. So, to the unaided eye you will be able to see Mars, the Moon, and Saturn only.
