Biggest Super Moon of the year visible from Thailand this Sunday

According to a leading astronomer people in Thailand will be treated to a rare sight on Sunday, the biggest super-moon of the year, which will be visible from 6pm onwards.

The announcement was made this morning by Saran Poshyachinda, director of the National Astronomical Research Institute who said the phenomenon is caused as a result of the moon’s orbit with the earth which will be at its closest point on December 3 when it is a mere 3557,973 kilometres away.

He noted that the distance is roughly 14 percent shorter than when the moon is at its furthest point from the earth and as a result on Sunday the moon should appear roughly 30 times brighter than normal.
