Cheers,

From experience F-U-L-L M-O-O-N seems to hit 'em really bad in Thailand (& Laos.)

December 12 — The Full Cold Moon
Sky watchers will be dazzled by an exceptionally high, bright, and large Moon. In fact, this Moon is 14% bigger and 30% brighter than other full Moons this year. Why? The Moon is both in its full phase and at a point in its orbit that is nearest Earth, called its perigee. When these events occur together, the Moon is closer to Earth than usual. The effect? The Full Cold Moon will appear especially large near the horizon as the Sun sets.

Well as a retired cop I can tell you for sure it's the full moon.

David think we might get a hint out of that when Peta Koon Festival will be? Sure would like to stay in town next time
