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

Nation prepares for sky spectacular

......"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...

^^ 3 for 1: supermoon, blue moon, blood moon (lunar eclipse). Also, fairly unusually, the month of February will have no full moon, and March will then, like January, have two.
