Moon before southern standstill

7 days after previous North standstill on 26 December 2099 at 23:34 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.345°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.379° in the next southern standstill on 8 January 2100 at 21:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.
