CityNews – Thailand’s Ministry of Science and Technology, with help from the National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand, revealed that on 23rd June at around 6.11 p.m. the public will be able to see a ‘super moon’ from Earth. On this day, the moon will make its closest orbit to the Earth at a distance of about 356,989 kilometres away.
Sarun Posayajinda, the deputy director of the National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand told the press that the moon’s orbit of the earth is always from west to east, and usually takes about one month. In every month, the nearest orbit of the moon to the earth is known as a ‘Perigee’, and the furthest orbit is called an ‘Apogee’. He added that the orbit will cause changes to tidal currents.
The last ‘super moon’ orbit was on 6th May 2012 at 356,953 kilometres away from the earth. The event is cause for much celebration in Thailand, as several party islands will enjoy super full moon parties.
