This Sunday afternoon will bring a very rare partial solar eclipse visible throughout Thailand, including Pattaya.
The event should begin around 1:00 PM Sunday with the peak of the event in our area, where the moon will cover roughly 40 percent of the sun visibly locally should be around 3:00 PM in the afternoon.
This will be visible of course based on the weather permitting. The current forecast calls for late rain but likely an afternoon of fairly high probability to view the partial eclipse.
