TIME.CO, Jakarta – Today’s top 3 Tekno news starts with a topic about the uniqueness of the lunar eclipse on Monday, November 30th. Observers in Indonesia cannot see this completely. “When the moon rises, it is in an eclipse condition,” said Avivah Yamani, an astronomical activist at the Southern Sky Community, Bandung, Monday, November 2, 2020.
The next most popular news about BMKG stated that there was no potential for aftershocks after the earthquake in the Bandung Regency area, Sunday night, November 1, 2020. The magnitude 4.0 earthquake occurred at 21.34 WIB.
In addition, a tectonic earthquake with a magnitude of 4.0 shook parts of Bandung this evening on Sunday, November 1, 2020. The Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) noted that it occurred at 21.34 WIB with the origin of the earthquake known on land.
Here are the three most popular news from the Tekno channel:
1. The uniqueness of the 2020 Final Lunar Eclipse in late November

The 2020 lunar eclipse will end on Monday, November 30th. However, observers in Indonesia cannot fully witness this. “When the moon rises, it is in an eclipse condition,” said Avivah Yamani, an astronomical activist at the Southern Sky Community, Bandung, Monday, November 2, 2020.
According to him, the lunar eclipse of the penumbra on November 30, 2020 in the territory of Indonesia will start at 14:32 WIB. Peak hours are at 16.44 WIB and end at 18.53 WIB. Observation of the lunar eclipse in Indonesian territory can only be made after sunset. When the new full moon appears, it immediately appears in an eclipse state.
The lunar eclipse at the end of November was not total, but a gloom. Therefore, the moon will not disappear from the sky because the sun’s rays are covered by the earth’s shadow. To quote Langit Selatan, the moon that is bright because it is a full moon will disappear during the eclipse of the gloom. The moon will appear as if it were blocked by a dark shadow.
A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth is between the sun and the moon in a parallel configuration. This position forms the two cones of the Earth’s shadow. The shadow in the outer cone is the shadow area of the penumbra. At that moment, the earth prevents part of the sunlight from reaching the moon. Meanwhile, a total lunar eclipse occurs when another shadow cone, called umbra, causes the Earth’s shadow to completely cover the moon.

The Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency or BMKG declared that there was no potential for aftershocks after the earthquake in the Bandung Regency area, Sunday night, November 1, 2020. The magnitude 4.0 earthquake occurred at 21:34 WIB.
“So far, there have been no reports of damage to buildings as a result of the earthquake,” said the head of BBMKG Region II, Hendro Nugroho, in a statement received in Bandung late on Sunday.
He said the earthquake originated on land, a depth of five kilometers, so there is no potential for a tsunami in the sea south of the island of Java. The cause is known for the activity of the Garut Sul or Garsela Fault, to be more precise, 21 kilometers southeast of the Bandung Regency.
The strongest vibrations were felt in the Pangalengan district with a scale of III MMI or the equivalent of an earthquake vibration that could be felt inside the house, as if a truck was passing.
This earthquake occurred just a day apart from that of Purwakarta and the quake was also felt in western Bandung. The earthquake on Saturday morning was recorded with a magnitude of 2.6 M, but with an even shallower depth, that is, three kilometers. In this area the existence of the Cirata Fault is known.

A tectonic earthquake with a magnitude of 4.0 shook part of the Bandung area on Sunday, November 1, 2020. The Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) noted that it occurred at 21:34 WIB with the origin of the known earthquake in land.
The earthquake was classified as shallow, with a depth of 5 kilometers. The cause can be identified immediately due to the activity of the Garsela Fault (South Garut).
According to a written statement by the Head of BBMKG Region II, Tangerang Hendro Nugroho, the center or epicenter of the earthquake was located at the coordinates of 7.20 LS and 107.60 East Longitude. “To be precise, 21 kilometers southeast of Bandung Regency,” he said.
The impact of the earthquake, as in the BMKG shock level map and based on community reports, was real in the Pangalengan district area. On the MMI III intensity scale or homesick vibrations felt in the house as if a truck was passing.
