2016 Solar Eclipse - IndonesiaTweet
The total solar eclipse of 09 March 2016 will reach a maximum duration of 04m09s.
The eclipse path crosses Indonesia before heading out into the Pacific Ocean. Indonesia is the only significant land-mass that the eclipse path passes over.
The path of totality will pass through Mukomuko, Palembang, Tandjungpandan, Kendawangan, Tanahgrogot, Tanjung Pakuli, Gimpu, Soa-Siu and Ternate all of which are close to the centre line of the eclipse.
Balikpapan, Palu and Amuntai are under the line of totality but are further from the centre line.
Current eclipse plans
We will be viewing the eclipse from Indonesia. We will, almost certainly, enter Indonesia through Jakarta. However, we have yet to determine exactly where we will be viewing the eclipse from. I would appreciate if you could send any information you have regarding good viewing locations for the 2016 eclipse.
Eclipse tour operators
Tour operators are invited to submit their current plans to me as I will be keeping a record of whos going where and when. A strong preference is given to operators giving a link back to this site.
