Jakarta, CNN Indonesia —
Even though it’s not 2022 yet, register sky phenomenon Astronomy in 2022 is predictable, one of which is the Total Lunar Eclipse.
Astronomical phenomena that will occur have been calculated by researchers so that the time of the event has been estimated. In addition to the Total Lunar Eclipse, other phenomena that will take place are conjunctions between planets, Moon activities such as Super Full Moons and Lunar Eclipses, to meteor showers.
Reported from Planetarium Jakarta’s official Instagram account, here’s a complete list of natural phenomena in the field of Astronomy that will occur in 2022 and their timing:
The phenomenon of conjunction between planets will occur a lot in 2022. To observe this phenomenon, you can observe the following dates in the early morning until the sun rises.
The following is a list of the phenomena of interplanetary conjunction in 2022:
Saturn sunrise time: April 5, 2022 02:31 WIB
Peak time of phenomenon: April 5, 2022 05:05 WIB
Saturn setting time: April 5, 2022 2:48 p.m. EST
Peak time of the phenomenon: May 1, 2022 01:42 WIB
Venus rising time: May 1, 2022 03:09 WIB
Jupiter setting time: May 1, 2022 15:13 WIB
Jupiter-Mars . conjunction

Peak time of phenomenon: May 29, 2022 07.03 WIB
Jupiter setting time: May 29, 2022 1:42
Micro New Moon
Micro New Moon is a phenomenon where the Moon is in the new Moon phase as well as being at the Apogee position or the farthest point of the Moon from Earth.
This phenomenon will occur on June 29, 2022 and can be observed after sunset. But the observations will be quite difficult because the sunset time of the Sun and Moon is only about 12 minutes.
Super Full Moon
Super Full Moon is a phenomenon when the Moon is in the Full phase as well as being at its closest position from Earth or Perigee.
This makes the Moon appear larger than usual.
This phenomenon will occur on July 14, 2022 since the Moon rises at 17.30 WIB until the Moon sets the next day at 06.25 WIB.
The peak time of the Full Moon will occur on July 14 at 01:37 WIB.
But we need to be careful when making observations because the moonlight can be very blinding.
Total lunar eclipse
The phenomenon of a total lunar eclipse will occur at the end of 2022, to be precise on November 28, 2022.
This phenomenon is said to be observable throughout Indonesia, and the best location for observation is the eastern part of Indonesia because it has a longer eclipse duration.
The Total Lunar Eclipse phenomenon will enter the initial total phase at 17.16 WIB and experience the peak of the total phase at 17.59 WIB.
Besides Indonesia, the Total Lunar Eclipse phenomenon can also be observed in a number of countries such as India, Myanmar, China, the United States, Mexico, the Philippines, Australia, North Korea, Thailand, Australia, Cuba, and Guatemala.
Meteor shower phenomena that will occur in 2022 include the Perseid and Geminid Meteor Showers.
The peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower will occur on August 13, 2022 starting at 00.15 WIB until the sun begins to rise at 06.01 WIB.
The Perseid Meteor Shower phenomenon itself lasts from July 17 to August 24.
Meanwhile, the peak of the Geminid Meteor Shower will occur at the end of the year, precisely on December 14 at 20:06 WIB until the sunrise at 05:34 WIB.
The Geminid Meteor Shower will last from December 4 to 17, 2022.
