Moon after southern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 19 August 2086 at 11:08 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.198°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.092° in the next northern standstill on 1 September 2086 at 02:04 in ♊ Gemini.
