We in Indonesia can see the phenomenon of lunar eclipse that occurred on January 31, 2018. This phenomenon that we witnessed on camera only, because there is a call from the government that we should not see a lunar eclipse directly. We just dare to see a lunar eclipse directly w
For the Javanese themselves, it is unique that in the event of a lunar eclipse all the sleepers are awakened, including for anyone who is pregnant to hide under the bed or under the table. We do not know the reason, but in our opinion such a thing can be done just to preserve the culture only.
Even some people who have another unique tradition that if there is a lunar eclipse or solar eclipse they hit Lumpang. Lumpang is the usual place to pound rice into rice. But there is no rice, but just beaten like a band that is doing a charity concert.Looks funny indeed but this has now become a cultural uniqueness that does not hurt us to preserve. This shows that in the past there has been such a phenomenon.
