Super Full Moon Will be Visible in Thailand Feb 19th, 2019

The moon will shine in full at a closer distance of 356,836 kilometers from the earth, which will appear 7% larger and 16% brighter in the night sky.

The National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand (NARIT) is inviting the general public to observe Super Full Moon which can be seen on 19 Feb 2019,at 22:53 PM.

NARIT’s Astronomical Academic Services Division chief Supalerk Karuehanon revealed on the night of Makha Bucha day, or 19 February 2019, the moon will shine in full at a closer distance of 356,836 kilometers from the earth, which will appear 7% larger and 16% brighter in the night sky.

He said the Super Full Moon phenomenon will be observable with the naked eye from 06:11 pm. in Thailand.

The moon orbits around the earth in an elliptic path, with the farthest distance called Apogee at 406,700 kilometers, and the closest distance called Perigee at 356,400 kilometers. At Perigee, the moon only causes more tides than usual.

Meanwhile, NARIT will provide telescopes for the general public to observe Super Full Moon at its observatory in Sirindhorn Astronomical Park in Chiang Mai, at Sevent-Cycle Celebration observatory in Nakhon Ratchasima, at Seventh-Cycle Celebration observatory in Chachoengsao, and at Mermaid Observation Point on Samila Beach in Songkhla.

Some 360 schools across the country will also organize activities that night. The list of venues for Super Full Moon is available on www.narit.or.th website

No matter how bright the moon, a small cloud can block the view - Chinese proverb

For that super full moon announced a small cloud won't do much. It's got to be a huge cloud. Is there any? ;)
