A total eclipse of the sun is expected to occur in Indonesia in April 2016, with the provinces of Bengkulu, South Sumatra, South Kalimantan and Central Sulawesi seen as potential viewing sites for the phenomenon.
“Tourists have booked hotel rooms and homestays from March to April 2016. They will come to watch the total eclipse of the sun,” Palu city’s Culture, Tourism and Creative Economy Office head Rosdiana Lalusu told The Jakarta Post on Monday.
She said a coordination meeting had been held because the Central Sulawesi provincial administration had received information from relevant agencies on the total eclipse of the sun, which is expected to take place on April 9, 2016 at 1.58pm for 4 minutes and 9 seconds.
