Half a moon: Bangkok to see partial solar eclipse tomorrow

A partial solar eclipse will be visible in Bangkok tomorrow morning, adding some excitement for Bangkokians who are up early for work.

From 6:30am to 8:30am tomorrow, people in Bangkok will be able to see a partial solar eclipse as the moon will obscure up to 40 percent of the sun at exactly 7:32am, according to National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand.

The institute will set up a viewing station at Benjakiti Park on Ratchadapisek Road for early birds to enjoy the sight.

Although the partial solar eclipse will be seen all over the country, the best place to view it in Thailand is Batong district of Yala, where the the moon will cover 69 percent of the sun, the greatest coverage in the country.

Meanwhile, some provinces in Indonesia will be able to observe a rare total eclipse for two to three minutes tomorrow.

It is predicted that Thailand will not see another total eclipse until April 11, 2070, or another 54 years.
