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 3.45-day day old waxing crescent Moon reaches apogee for the second time this month on Monday 30 June at 19 UT (2 pm CDT). At that time the Moon will more or less be at a distance of 31.75 Earth diameters (404,558 km or 251,396 miles) from the Earth.
