Travel Tips : Total lunar eclipse

The Ministry of Science and Technology of Thailand announced that there will be a total lunar eclipse as the first time in four years, and the phenomena could be seen in Thailand mid June. The National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand (NARIT) under the supervision of the Ministry of Science and Technology said people in Thailand could observe the phenomena, a total lunar eclipse, on 2011 June 16, from 1.22 a.m. to 4.03 a.m. According to NARIT Deputy Director Saran Poshyachinda, the upcoming total lunar eclipse will be the first in four years after the phenomenon was last seen on March 3, 2007. Moreover, this upcoming lunar eclipse will last for three hours and 39 minutes, which will be the longest ever recorded seen in Thailand. The moon will start passing behind the earth at 1.22 a.m. of June 16. The sun, the earth and the moon will be exactly aligned causing a total lunar eclipse from 2.22 a.m. until 4.03 a.m. The total lunar eclipse will clearly be visible in every region of the kingdom (unless there are clouds of course). The next lunar eclipse will be able to be seen from Thailand on Dec. 10. See wikipedia.org
