Another Date For Us To Remember,

here in Thailand,

November the 14th. not only is it the day of the Loy Krathong day when Thais across the country celebrate by going out to natural waterways or pools to float krathongs and all resident here will have a rare chance to see the moon at its biggest andbrightest in nearly 70 years, the Moon will appear up to 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than an average full moon, this is the closest the Moon will get to Earth until November 25, 2034, as explained by NASA, because the Moon has an elliptical orbit, one side called the perigee is about 48,280 km close to Earth than the other side called the apogee, the full moon of November 14 is not only the closest full moon of 2016, but also the closest full moon to date in the 21st century, said NASA, so cameras out for Monday, I just hope for clear skies.
