The Moon reaches perigee for the second time, (minimum distance from Earth), this month on Thursday March 30th. At that time the Moon will more or less be at a distance of 28.5 Earth diameters (363,853 km or 226,088 miles) from the Earth.

On the day of the perigee Moon the 3-day old waxing crescent Moon is over the western horizon at sunset local time, above to the left from Mars, and Mars sets a few hours after the Sun sets.
