While the next Supermoon phase will begin on January 30, 2018 at 16:56 pm. The distance of the moon and the earth is 2 km away from the previous one.
"The moon is on the perigee of 358,993 km."

Eclipses can be observed from all over Indonesia. This total eclipse will occur for one hour 16 minutes which causes the Moon to be red.
Be careful of the rob flood
Along with this supermoon phenomenon, BMKG warned for residents around the coast. Because, it is feared there is an increase in the maximum tide of sea water.
This maximum tide is expected to lead to a rob flood from the sea water pairs that inundate the land. The condition is predicted to occur between 01 - 04 January 2018 and 29 January - 2 February 2018.
