People all over the world and here in Thailand were treated to a rare sight after the moon appeared red for several hours last night with many taking to social media to post pictures of the “Super Blood Moon.”
Dr Saran Poshyachinda the director of the National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand (Narit) recently encouraged people to go out and observe the phenomenon stating that it could be observed with the naked eye from many parts of the kingdom.
He noted that the moon would also appear bigger than usual during the event.
The moon appeared red as a result of the first total lunar eclipse of 2018.
Narit organised special events for people to watch the lunar eclipse which took place in Chiang Mai, Nakhon Ratchasima, Chachoengsap and Songkhla which all started from 5pm.
Currently experts are predicting that the next total lunar eclipse will take place on July 27 of this year.
