Welcome to The New Age : 20th

ImageImage

“Twenty years ago, a baby was born in the city of one-horn rhino. On that day, all of people were waiting worriedly. Waiting for the birth of a little pure baby. For the sake of rolling time, nowadays, that little baby has grown becoming a young man. A young man who keep struggling to reach his dreams.”

Until now, I still have a feeling that I’m lack of preparation facing this kind of period. I still feel that I’m trapped on my teenager zone. Moreover sometimes I felt that I’m childish. But, what could I do ?. I couldn’t stop the time for rolling. I had no authority for slowing the time. All I can do is just letting the time keep rolling. And all I need to do is adapting myself in every single second passed by. So, at the moment I’m trying to fit and fix all the things that I had with this kind of new age. Start from my mind, body, and soul.

I knew that its not as easy as I write this written. But I have to pass through this phase.Greatly.

Herewith, I wanna say a Special thanks toward Allah SWT who has given me this new age; I wish I can keep this mandate nicely. Then, I wanna say thanks a million toward all my family, who have given me uncountable support and pray so that I could pass this life voluptuously. Also, I wanna say thanks for all of my friends who have coloring my life with your all stories, jokes, laughs, and insights ; I wish that our brotherhood will always stand firmly until we getting old together.

I do realize that I need to change several sides of me in order to fit myself with this new circumstance. I have to be more mature in attitude, words, and behavior. I have to be more diligent in passing through every single day of my life. I have to be more useful in every place that I step on. Etc.

And I also aware that I don’t need to eliminate and remove my childish, adolescent or another characteristic completely, I think that I still need this kind of stuffs in certain time and spot. All I have to do is empowering my self-control to dominate myself with positive characteristics. Because no one perfect in this entire world. 🙂

“Oh if I could turn back time rewind, I would repair all of my faults, and avoid the foolish things that I ever did in the past.”

WELL, I’M ALL GROWN UP NOW. IT’S A BRAND NEW DAY. WELCOME MY 20th ANNIVERSARY  🙂

There are so many things, stuffs, and experiences that I went trough ‘till now. But still, there are so many things that should be changed inside myself. Becoming a better person in every single day start from this second.*** :’)

MENANTI GERHANA MATAHARI CINCIN 29 APRIL 2014

Image

Berdasarkan informasi Tanda Waktu yang telah dirilis oleh BMKG (Badan Meteorologi Klimatologi dan Geofisika). Selang 14 hari setelah terjadinya fenomena alam Gerhana Bulan Total pada Selasa, 15 April 2014 akan terjadi fenomena alam lain yakni Gerhana Matahari Cincin pada Selasa, 29 April 2014 mendatang.Gerhana Matahari Cincin ini hanya dapat disaksikan di sebagian Antartika  bagian timur laut. Sementara selain di wilayah tersebut, gerhana ini dapat juga dilihat di Australia, Samudra Hindia bagian selatan, dan sebagian Antartika bagian utara berupa Gerhana Matahari Sebagian. Beberapa daerah di Indonesia yang dapat di gunakan sebagai lokasi untuk mengamati gerhana ini berada di wilayah Indonesia bagian selatan. Yaitu, Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta, Jawa Timur bagian Selatan, Bali, Nusa Tenggara Barat dan Nusa Tenggara Timur. Semua daerah pengamatan gerhana di Indonesia hanya tampak sebagai Gerhana Matahari Sebagian. Fenomena Gerhana Matahari ini sangat menarik untuk kita nanti dan amati, sekaligus mengingatkan kita akan kebesaran kuasa Sang Pencipta alam semesta Allah SWT.

Peristiwa terjadinya Gerhana Bulan yang disusul dengan Gerhana Matahari ataupun sebaliknya, Gerhana Matahari yang disusul dengan Gerhana Bulan merupakan sebuah ‘sunnatullah’ ketetapan Allah SWT. Sebab, tatkala Bulan menempati sebuah titik nodal pada saat fase oposisi/purnama, dan pada saat Bumi berada diantara Matahari dan Bulan. Atau Matahari, Bumi, dan Bulan berada sejajar dalam satu garis lurus, sehingga sinar Matahari yang menuju Bulan untuk dipantulkan kembali oleh Bulan terhalangi Bumi. Maka terjadilah fenomena Gerhana Bulan. Lalu, 14 hari kemudian Bulan pun akan menempati titik nodal yang berikutnya dalam fase konjungsi/Bulan baru, dan padasaatposisi Bumi berada diantara Matahari dan Bulan. Atau Matahari, Bumi, dan Bulan berada sejajar dalam satu garis lurus, sehingga sebagian sinar Matahari yang menuju Bumi terhalang oleh Bulan. Maka terjadilah Gerhana Matahari. Perlu Anda ketahui, titik nodal adalah titik potong orbit Bulan terhadap ekliptika (bidang edar Bumi dalam mengelilingi Matahari).

Kenampakan Gerhana Matahari

Salah satu tolok ukur untuk menilai gampang tidaknya suatu gerhana Matahari bisa diamati dari suatu lokasi adalah pada magnitudo gerhananya. Magnitudo gerhana merupakan luas bagian Matahari yang tertutupi oleh cakram Bulan di kala puncak gerhana Matahari berbanding dengan luas bundaran Matahari secara keseluruhan, yang dinyatakan dalam persentase. Sehingga bilamana magnitudo gerhana mencapai 100 %, maka seluruh bundaran Matahari tertutupi sepenuhnya oleh cakram Bulan. Saat itu kita akan melihatnya sebagai Gerhana Matahari Total. Sedangkan bila magnitudo gerhana di antara 90 hingga 100 %, maka masih ada bagian bundaran Matahari yang menyembul dari tepian cakram Bulan. Kita akan menyaksikannya sebagai Gerhana Matahari Cincin (Anular). Sementara bila magnitudo gerhana di antara 50 hingga 90 %, Matahari akan terlihat menyerupai sabit. Dan bila magnitudo gerhana kurang dari 50 %, maka Matahari akan terlihat sebagai lingkaran yang teriris/terobek pada salah satu sisinya.

Dalam gerhana Matahari 29 April 2014 besok, magnitudo gerhana di pulau Jawa bernilai antara 0 % hingga 1,8 % dengan nilai terbesar terletak di kota Banyuwangi (Jawa Timur). Sementara di pulau Bali magnitudo gerhananya di antara 1,5 % hingga 3 % dengan magnitudo terbesar di kota Denpasar. Di Nusa Tenggara Barat, magnitudo gerhana di antara 2,2 % hingga 3,2 %. Dan di Nusa Tenggara Timur, magnitudo gerhana berkisar di antara 0,3 % hingga 7,6 % dengan magnitudo tertinggi berada di kota Baa. Dengan demikian magnitudo gerhana di seluruh Indonesia adalah relatif kecil, katakanlah bila dibandingkan dengan daratan Australia yang berkesempatan menikmati gerhana Matahari ini dengan nilai magnitudo gerhana di antara 10 hingga 60 %.

Magnitudo gerhana yang kecil membuat Gerhana Matahari 29 April 2014 hanya bisa diamati dengan menggunakan teleskop di sebagian besar wilayah gerhana di Indonesia. Dengan tidak diperkenankannya kita menatap Matahari secara langsung menggunakan teleskop, maka teknik observasi gerhana bisa dilakukan dengan cara mereduksi sinar Matahari yang memasuki teleskop demikian rupa hingga intensitasnya tinggal 0,01 % dari semula dengan menggunakan filter Matahari ND-5 (neutral density 5). Atau bisa juga dengan menggunakan cara tak langsung, salah satunya berupa teknik proyeksi yang relatif lebih murah dan terjangkau.

Selain teleskop lengkap dengan penyangganya, teknik proyeksi membutuhkan sehelai kertas putih tak tembus cahaya yang bakal difungsikan sebagai layar proyeksi, sebuah penyangga (bisa tripod atau meja/kursi), sebuah payung dan kertas karton secukupnya. Kertas karton dipotong demikian rupa sehingga kertas putih tak tembus cahaya bisa direkatkan padanya dengan baik. Gabungan kertas ini lalu difungsikan sebagai layar proyeksi. Siapkan teleskop pada penyangganya demikian rupa untuk tujuan pengamatan Matahari. Arahkan teleskop menghadap Matahari sehingga sinar Matahari memasuki tabung teleskop dan diloloskan secara utuh oleh lensa okuler (eyepiece). Pasang layar proyeksi di belakang okuler untuk menghadang sinar Matahari yang keluar dari teleskop. Atur lensa okuler demikian rupa (gerakkan maju atau mundur) sehingga berkas sinar yang keluar darinya akan membentuk bayangan cakram Matahari yang bundar, tajam dan utuh di layar proyeksi. Selain berkemungkinan menangkap saat-saat cakram Bulan melintas di depan bundaran Matahari, observasi dengan teknik proyeksi juga berpeluang mengamati fenomena lain di permukaan Matahari, yakni bintik Matahari (sunspot).

TIPE GERHANA MATAHARI

Gerhana Matahari dibagi menjadi 3 macam tipe, yaitu gerhana Matahari cincin, gerhana Matahari sebagian, dan gerhana Matahari total.

  1. Gerhana matahari cincin terjadi jika piringan Bulan pada waktu puncak gerhana hanya menutup sebagian piringan Matahari. Gerhana matahari cincin terjadi jika ukuran piringan Bulan lebih kecil daripada piringan Matahari. Sehingga saat piringan Bulan terletak di depan piringan Matahari, tidak semua bagian piringan Matahari akan tertutup oleh piringan Bulan. Bagian dari piringan Matahari yang tidak tertutup oleh piringan Bulan, terletak di sekitar piringan Bulan dan tampak seperti cincin yang bersinar.
  2. Gerhana Matahari sebagian terjadi jika piringan Bulan ketika puncak gerhana hanya menutup sebagian piringan matahari. Saat gerhana ini, ada bagian piringan Matahari yang tak tertutup oleh piringan Bulan
  3. Gerhana Matahari dikatakan gerhana matahari total ketika puncak gerhana,  piringan Matahari ditutup sepenuhnya oleh piringan Bulan. Pada waktu itu, piringan Bulan sama besarnya atau lebih besar daripada piringan Matahari. Ukuran piringan Bulan dan piringan Matahari berubah-ubah, bergantung pada tiap-tiap jarak antara Bumi dan Matahari serta jarak antara Bumi dan Bulan.

Pada tahun 2014 ini BMKG telah memprediksi akan terjadi empat kali gerhana. Yaitu,

  1. Gerhana Bulan Total 15 April 2014. Gerhana ini dapat diamati dari wilayah Indonesia kecuali Jawa bagian Barat, Kalimantan bagian Barat dan Sumatera. Gerhana ini dapat diamati juga dari Afrika bagian Barat, Eropa bagian Barat, Samudra Atlantik, Amerika, Samudra Pasifik, Asia Timur, dan Filipina.
  • Gerhana Matahari Cincin 29 April 2014. Gerhana tersebut dapat diamati dari wilayah Yogyakarta, Jawa Timur bagian Selatan, Bali dan Nusa Tenggara berupa Gerhana Matahari Sebagian. Selain dari Indonesia, gerhana ini dapat diamati juga dari Australia, Samudra Hindia bagian Selatan, dan Antartika.
  • Gerhana Bulan Total 8 Oktober 2014. Gerhana ini dapat diamati dari wilayah Indonesia. Gerhana ini dapat diamati juga dari Amerika, Samudra Pasifik, Australia dan Asia kecuali Asia Barat.
  • Gerhana Matahari Sebagian 23 Oktober 2014. Gerhana tersebut tidak dapat dilihat dari wilayah Indonesia. Gerhana dapat dilihat di Amerika Utara dan Samudera Pasifik bagian utara.

A Great Reminiscence at Cisarua : The Magnificent 7. #Prajab

Dipo Hall, Thursday, 27th March 2014

There was something different with the class that Thursday; The placement of chairs, The feeling of class occupants, and The agenda of that day. EXAMINATION. The clock was ticking and showing 7.30 am, the class was completed. Some of students were busy of reviewing a lot of matters. Some of students were chatting each other. And another flew with their own bustles. I just could sit quietly and looking around, Enjoying the last chapter of staying at classroom. Ya, that day is the last day where The Magnificent 7 staying in one class together. What is The Magnificent 7 you may ask ?. So, The Magnificent 7 is a nickname that I made for my new family. This family was formed when we were joining the training and education of prajabatan program on 9 – 28 March 2014. In Green Village, Cisarua, Bogor. We gathered in the seven group, by this group, I got many new points of view, a lot of new experiences, gigantic wisdoms, lessons, new friends, and new FAMILY. In other way, we also were success being the winner of Yell Championship and the best group with the most numerous gratified scores. It was so contented being the part of this fam. Thats why, I called this family with The Magnificent 7. 😀

The examination was started at 8 am and finished at 10 am we only need approximately two hours for filling the question papers. While having exam, the atmosphere of class was so quiet, silent, and clear. Fortunately, no one went into the dreams realm ( red : Slumber ) when having exam, unlike a few days before when we still studying together with the teachers. The Exam was done, two hours was over. The Exam was ended at 10 am exactly. Soon after that, the class was so noisy. Yeah, it was coming back to normal level. The chatting continued, we were having coffee break, and ‘Capturing pictures was began’. Start from selfie until snapshot, photo of contingent, class, organization, etc. The blitz flashing in every corner. Every single pose exhibited, from photogenic, epic, exotic, then coming to “alay”. We were just like models and being photographer commutating. The class turned into a massal photo studio only in seconds. All of them collide into one. In the name of NARSISISM. (Including me without the exception). xD

Today, I just pretty much miss that moment. It’s almost one month left since that EXAM done. Sometime, I was imagining we were gathering in tea garden doing “A ‘dumb’ Truth or Dare Game”. Which our admired objects were known by others. LOL xD.

In this ocassion, I’m just able to write a very short story about our togetherness. Actually, I want to share more. But I realized that our moments were so much many. Probably in another opportunity I will share more our great moment. I hope we could do gather together oneday, somewhere and somehow.

I MISS THE MAGNIFICENT 7 🙂

Hi guys!, How’s everything ?? wish you all in good circumstance.

well, it has been one and half month we’re being separated. Is it too slow ? or, Is it too fast ?. Just conclude it by yourselves, hehe.

Do you know GEO48?, recently, I miss the atmosphere when we’re in the class, althought we’re not only studying but also chatting, joking, playing, and sleeping instead. I miss the moment when we’re in tamia’s,resty’s,melda’s,anita’s flat due to an emergency JARKOM or on behalf of usual gathering (especially when this flat provide much snacks and cookies, I do like it so much.hhaha). I miss the ambience of earthquake observation on duty, moreover for boys, its not about night earthquake observation only but also lodging in the Lab xD. and Do you know GEO48? its coming from my deep inside of my heart, honestly, I don’t miss the atmosphere when we’re in the field, it hurts.Lol xD You_Know_What_I_Mean).

At the time, we’re in our own way executing a duty of our study. we’re being separated for seven months more approximately. Seven Months?. Its short enough, though.

Here, I’m just able to send my pray for you all. May you always be hale and healthy. For those who suffering illness, May God get you well soon. May God always ease us in everything. And The Important One , MAY OUR “SK” COULD BE LEGITIMATED IMMEDIATELY !!! (AMIN 1001X).  Until We Meet Again GEO48!!! 🙂
