Our Moon reaches apogee, (greatest distance from Earth), on Monday April 1st. At that time the Moon will more or less be at a distance of 31.79 Earth diameters 252,520 miles (406,391 km) from the Earth.
Does our Moon actually go around the Earth? 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*
On the day of the apogee the 26-day old very thin waning crescent Moon will be over the southeastern horizon 30-60 minutes before sunrise local time.
