Thursday Early Days, One of Oldest Moon Eclipses in Indonesia

16 June 2011, Astronomy and astrophysics researcher Institute of Aeronautics and Space Agency (Lapan), Thomas Djamaluddin, said Thursday morning event will likely be one of the longest total lunar eclipse in history. "The length of time a total of about 100 minutes since the position of the month close to the center of the shadow of the earth," said Thomas.
He explains, long total lunar eclipse is dependent on the first, the distance to the center of the track in the shadow of the earth, and second, the distance of the moon to the earth.
In general, Thomas said, there is no significant impact of the lunar eclipse. One that will probably attract attention is the possible maximum tidal sea water. "This happens because the position of the earth, moon and the sun is almost straight-line. The combined effects of the three is the maximum tide," he said.
Total lunar eclipse will be visible in all parts of Indonesia without exception. It's just special to people living in Papua will not be able to see the final phase of a total eclipse of the moon because it was morning. "But from the west to the central region of Indonesia will be able to watch all phases of the eclipse," said Thomas.
