The waning crescent Moon reaches apogee this month on Saturday November 15th at 2 UT (Friday 14 November at 8 pm CST). At that time the Moon will more or less be at a distance of 31.7 Earth diameters (403,921 km or 250,985 miles) from the Earth.
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*.This thin 22.5-day old waning crescent Moon shows about 42% of its disk and rises several hours before sunrise local time as this graphic shows. The Moon will be easily noticed as it is down to the left from Jupiter (magnitude -2.0) and the star Regulus (magnitude 1.34).
