Leonids tonight, but nearly full moon will probably obscure viewing.

......"He said there will be several events including planets moving close to Earth in their orbit paths.

They include:

Jupiter's orbit during April 7-8;
Saturn on June 15;
A lunar eclipse seen from Thailand on Feb 11 and Aug 22;
A solar eclipse on Feb 26 and Aug 21;
A meteor shower during Aug 12-13 and Dec 13-14;
Super moon on Dec 3; and
Mini moon on June 9.

Mr Saran said these phenomena can be seen with the naked eye, or preferably using a telescope.

He said Jupiter's orbit close to the Earth during April 7-8 will be the highlight of the celestial events."......

However, this country's turn to see a full solar eclipse will next come on April 11, 2070 in Prachaup Khiri Khan's tambon Waghor, where King Rama IV once made the correct prediction that a solar eclipse would take place there.

If you don't want to wait that long just plan a trip to the U.S. this coming August...
