APOGEE AND PERIGEE From timeanddate.com
The Moon's orbit around Earth is not a perfect circle, but elliptical, with one side closer to Earth than the other. As a result, the distance between the Moon and Earth varies throughout the month and the year. On average, the distance is about 382,900 kilometers (238,000 miles). The point on the Moon's orbit closest to Earth is called the Perigee and the point farthest away is the Apogee.
Apogee (Furthest away from the earth) Thursday 15th.
Perigee (Closest to the earth) Thursday 1st and Tuesday 27th.

Reeds were and still are used as thatch for many homes. Placed on the floor they created warmth and insulation as well as being practical. They also made good candles when the tips were lit.
