Moon after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 18 March 2066 at 04:52 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.141°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.009° at the point of next northern standstill on 31 March 2066 at 23:06 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 days on 25 March 2066 at 22:13 in ♓ Pisces the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
