Moon before southern standstill

10 days after previous North standstill on 22 December 2064 at 22:07 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.786°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.815° in the next southern standstill on 5 January 2065 at 00:25 in ♐ Sagittarius.
