I agree - this will open new moonrise and moonset paths to the edges of the earth.

Hi guys I spent a few hours & worked many stations. I have not been on the moon for the last 11months.
What surprised me was the high declination of the moon
Around 24 degrees. I have never seen that before!!!
Being the most eastern station in North America I have on
Occasion worked the odd JA stations & Chinese & into Indonesia on my European window & I would assume with this new high declination, the Eastern coast of the USA probably have also access to south east Asia on their European window
Can someone explain to me why the moon declination is so far North?? Also how long will it last??
