Moon show to top the Earth's bill

Central Station | 18 May 2021

A special show in the sky featuring a moon with a coppery red hue is being presented by the Hong Kong Space Museum next Wednesday night.

It's a spectacular show that comes naturally and of course free.

The event is a total lunar eclipse that will be live-streamed by the Space Museum via its YouTube channel ( between 7pm and 9pm.

The highlight of the show, the actual eclipse, is expected to kick in at 7.11pm and will last for about 15 minutes.

If you want to see it with your own eyes museum experts recommend observing the eclipse in a east-southeast direction - obviously from places with unobstructed outlooks.

Lunar eclipses occur only during a full moon when the sun, Earth and moon are aligned in a way that Earth's shadow falls on the moon.

So just hope the weather is kind and the sky clear.
