Moon before southern standstill

10 days after previous North standstill on 17 December 2089 at 19:41 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.446°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.450° in the next southern standstill on 30 December 2089 at 21:23 in ♐ Sagittarius.
