Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 25 August 2065 at 15:06 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.110°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.026° in the next southern standstill on 7 September 2065 at 20:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.
