From our perspective on the Earth the Moon appears to orbit around the Earth, however in reality the Moon orbits the Sun together with the Earth.
This month the 26.22 day old waning crescent Moon reaches perigee this month on Thursday 27 March at 18:37 UT (1:37 pm CDT). At that time the Moon will more or less be at a distance of 28.67 Earth diameters (365,313 km or 227,009 miles) from the Earth.
On Thursday morning the waning crescent Moon will be within 4 degrees from the planet Venus.
