Moon before southern standstill

9 days since the previous standstill on 29 October 2026 at 17:40 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.795°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.697° at the point of next southern standstill on 12 November 2026 at 09:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.
