My picture of the day

In the night of the 10th December 2011 we had a total lunar eclipse here in Hong Kong. The weather was good, it was a clear night, freezing cold and windy and a good visibility.

The next lunar eclipse potentially observable in Hong Kong will occur on June 4, 2012, which will be a partial eclipse. Also in 2012, an annular solar eclipse will be potentially observable in Hong Kong on May 21, and a transit of Venus on June 6. Both are rare astronomical phenomena.lunar eclipse
