Our Moon orbits around the Sun with the Earth and from our perspective on the Earth the Moon appears to circle around the Earth. However in reality the Moon orbits the Sun together with the Earth*.
The nearly 5-day day old waxing crescent Moon reaches apogee this month on Tuesday 3 June at 4 UT (Monday 2 June at 10 pm CDT). At that time the Moon will more or less be at a distance of 31.745 Earth diameters (404,520 km or 251,357 miles) from the Earth.
