The century’s longest lunar eclipse will be seen in all parts of Thailand during July 27-28 between 00.14-6.10 am.

 

Dr Sarun Posayachinda, director of the National Institute of Astronomical Research said today that three astronomical phenomena would take place on the night of Asalha Bucha Day, starting from the night of July 27 until the early hours of July 28.

 

The total phase of the eclipse – called the totality – spans one hour and 43 minutes.  That’s in contrast to the shortest total lunar eclipse of this century, which occurred on April 4, 2015 and lasted 4 minutes and 48 seconds.

Why do they schedule astronomical events during rainy season?

No thought for others. Just me, me, me.
