Malaysians might get a chance to witness one spectacular sunrise in Kuala Lumpur this weekend.
So according to avid photographer and full-time Syazwan, Syazwan Basri, the sun is predicted to align perfectly between the Petronas Twin Towers – or KLCC as we locals call it – if you catch it from a certain perspective this Sunday morning (27 February) sometime between 7 and 8 am.
Promoting the phenomenon on Twitter, Syazwan shared that the event can be witnessed at the Changkat Tunku Lookout Point near Taman Duta which provides uninterrupted views of the KL skyline.
Speaking to TRP, Syazwan explained that the event only happens once or twice a year. He also shared that the KLCC sunrise would probably occur again on 15 October this year.
However, Syazwan did note that the public road at the lookout point is pretty narrow, so sunrise catchers are advised to be extra careful not to disturb traffic, residents in the area or the shutterbugs who are there to capture the magical moment.
Also be sure to abide by new normal rules, wear your masks and remain physically distant from others.

Similar views can be caught from a range of different places across the city, but you have to be at the right spot at exactly the right time, as shared by other local photographers online.

The phenomenon only occurs during certain times of the year as our planet Earth orbits around the Sun.
Earth’s slight 23.5-degree tilt perpendicular to the sun is what causes seasons to change and provides us with the perspective that the sun rises and sets at different locations across the horizon throughout the year.
You can also catch the sun rising perfectly over other iconic structures across the country, like this mesmerising view of the Penang Bridge sunrise taken recently.
