The next partial solar eclipse in Hong Kong will occur on 22 July 2028, whose magnitude will even be smaller than that of this one.
Partial eclipse begins: the instant when the Moon’s limb contacts the Sun’s limb.
Greatest eclipse: the instant when the apparent centers of the Moon and the Sun are at the smallest separation. The eclipse magnitude reaches its maximum at this time.
Partial eclipse ends: the instant when the Moon’s limb leaves the Sun’s limb completely.
Eclipse magnitude: reflects how deep the Moon eclipses the Sun. The larger the magnitude is, the larger proportion of the Sun is covered.

The eclipse this time is a hybrid solar eclipse. In addition to the partial solar eclipse, there are some places on Earth where a total solar eclipse or annular solar eclipse can be observed. The central point of the eclipse is located at the South of the equator. The eclipse magnitude is larger when the observer is closer to the central point. In Hong Kong, the partial solar eclipse will begin around noon. It can be observed from many districts. However, the eclipse magnitude and duration will be slightly larger in the southeastern region. Interested observers may first consider places at Kowloon East or the eastern part of Hong Kong Island.
The partial solar eclipse begins at 12:34 pm, where the Sun is located at about 79 degrees above the southwest horizon at that time. The entire eclipse will end at 1:16 pm.
