A partial solar eclipse will occur in Hong Kong SAR, China, People’s Republic of China on 20 April 2023 Hong  Kong SAR- Beijing Time , the eclipse magnitude is just about 0.03. The eclipse will not noticeably weaken the sunlight at that time. As the eclipse magnitude is small, observers may need a telescope to observe this solar eclipse. A specialised solar filter or an indirect way such as the projection method is essential for solar observation. Inadequate ways to observe the Sun may result in severe ocular burns…… Also the eclipse magnitude is just about 0.03. The eclipse will not noticeably weaken the sunlight at that time. As the eclipse magnitude is small, observers may need a telescope to observe this solar eclipse. A specialised solar filter or an indirect way such as the projection method is essential for solar observation. Inadequate ways to observe the Sun may result in severe ocular burns. The general public may also check the online platforms of the Hong Kong Space Museum to watch the live image of the solar eclipse on that day. 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.

#iPhonePhotography | 春天的月亮 Spring #Moon – #FullMoon Almost – 3rd September 2017


3rd September 2017 Auckland – New Zealand, is a an interesting week with current previously of last weeks of two there was a Solar Eclipse New Moon’s Umbra that transited  across the Top West towards the lower East Coast  Corner….. as it was shared on so many levels on Socials with innovations been brought out to archive the event as its next time it’s seen is another centennial in which Google provide an awesome social gatherings of observational data to create a Google Solar Eclipse MegaMovie..

As of yesterday of 3rd September 2017, Luna unveiling her terminator veil in revealing more than ninety percent… in which more of the Jade Rabbit with the stories of the seas of Tranquility also Serenity in which most of the remaining of the Apollo Lunar mission… As on a Sunday in which most of the country in New Zealand was celebrating Father’s Day, in which in Auckland Observatory-Stardome in which celebrated as with Father’s get in free as to Mother’s day too. The crowds came in with some first timers’ excitements in just in time later in with the last show before the clouds nomadically roam over briefly with the observations of the Moon along in with the Second largest gaseous Planet with iconic Cassini Rings…….

Among for the later in the night in between the light misty clouds… some distance back in time observations were with viewing   with the two Globular Clusters both averagely sixteen thousand Light years ago with Omega Centauri of the Southern cross also in the 47 Tucanne in the Constellation Tucanne…..  With the nearest Star system Alpha Centauri, a triple stars system with both stars almost the same equal mass with one smaller dwarf star hiding behind the other one…

#GOOGLE |#SolarEclipse – 21st August 2017- Eclipse Megamovie- Chasing the Totality…


During the 21st August 2017 over the United States of America time, an Astronomical event that happens over a centennial in which a Solar Eclipse in which the New Moon transited across in between the Nearest Star- Sun and the Earth…. In which transited across from the Corner of west coast towards the lower corner east coast in which during the event the innovative team at Google decide to make a mega movie of the Solar Eclipse in which capturing the moment at the time using various capable camera device mediums when the Moon eclipses the Sun..

During this event Google partnership with UC Berkeley, The Astronomical Society of the Pacific along with others from amateurs to professional photographers, to capture the event with over 1,300 citizen Scientist to photograph  the Totality in which your locations was also an essential part of the observation in getting those data sets in developing the Eclipse Mega Movie.. In which one of the interesting points was to capture the Sun’s Corona in which during the event capturing open source of invaluable data with that dark moment while the Moon’s Umbra transiting in creating a Megamovie of the Solar Eclipse 2017.. in which you can view the event through VR using #GoogleExpeditions…….

Also best not to look at the solar eclipse with a naked eye through an unfiltered telescope.. make sure you have a filtered telescope or optical equipment.. 

ASTRONOMY- #SOLARECLIPSE | ANNULAR – 1ST SEPTEMBER 2016- The African ring of fire- time lapse..

“…………The African ring of fire…………..”

Just moments ago or few hours ago an awesome Astronomy event just happened in where the Moon at it most distance due to the elliptical orbit of Moon Luna was transiting in front of the sun today, in which it’s called a partial eclipsed due to the nature of being a full eclipse in which one is bound to Luna Moon shadow across the United states of America next year of 2017 in 21st August from west starting from upper California of Portland to the east coast of Atlanta, Charleston..

Today’s Annular Solar Eclipse path was when through the top of South Africa, Gabon towards wise Tanzania to the Island of Madagascar to reunion island in where Slooh, the Public observatory in collaboration with Astronomers of sorts of backgrounds in providing the live coverage feed over the course from first to fourth contact where this time a silvery fiery ring was in using different provided solar filters of hydrogen and Lyra Filters in combination to see the course of the Annular solar Eclipse….started between 06:13 UTC to which the maximum point taken at 09:01 UTC in which the Annularity lasted only for least three minutes until moving onwards to third to fourth contact.. One Provide collaboration was “Weathernews Japan” in which they was based in Reunion Island in providing that feed... Least it’s not the Death Star from Star Wars that’s orbiting around Earth… ?

Photos were taken through the in between two solar flitered Meades LX-200 series telescopes, between the eight and ten inch mirrors in diameter. | postcard technique.

On the Fourteenth of November 2012, over the pacific there was a very unique temporal event that happened but the next one is seen again is on 2038 Dec 26.  The Temporal event was a total solar eclipse but partial it was a eclipsing in New Zealand seen.

Over here in Auckland, the partial total solar eclipse lasted for least in four hours in duration. In account of the day, the weather has been in part favourable than this year’s transit of Venus in which observing at Auckland Observatory | Stardome at that time was rolling robed clouds throughout the day. Somehow by Rao, the weather this time was pretty much scattered in good form behaviouring, letting us to view this time than to the Transit of Venus.

The whole dialogue started throughout into early hours of the morning of 0930 to least 1300 hours to the early afternoon. The crowds gather at the back of the Observatory where there was more room to accommodate them and the bank of grass provided more comfort standing, sitting and laying down to viewing the timeless event through either use of the Solar glasses or the various of telescopes with solar fliters.  The media was there also, from broadcasters such as 3News.co.nz, onenews also Skynews-prime. the atmosphere was packed, there was numberous photographers also. one nice thing photographing is noticing the sunspots, a dozen or least through using the different solar fliters.

During the height of the moment, when the moon shadowed at its total partial eclipse the day was warmly heated tempted then later be felt a slightly cooler, as most of the light intensity decreases as the Moon moves in front of the sun eclipsing its dark sheer chiffon shadow across the New Zealand’s landscape.
