This is a wonderful opportunity to gather in Wah Yan to watch the Total Lunar Eclipse with Wah Yan fellows. We’ll go to the roof of Ricci Building, the highest point of the School, for the observation. The eclipse lasts for several hours, and the estimated schedule is as follows:
Total eclipse of the Moon on 31 January 2018:
|Moon enters penumbra||18:51||Jan 31|
|Moon enters umbra||19:48||Jan 31|
|Total eclipse begins||20:51||Jan 31|
|Maximum eclipse||21:29||Jan 31|
|Total eclipse ends||22:07||Jan 31|
|Moon leaves umbra||23:11||Jan 31|
|Moon leaves penumbra||0:08||Feb 01|
It would be our honour to invite you and your family to join the event.
We will gather at 20:00 (main corridor) and dismiss at 22:30. We will provide a astronomical telescope and a binocular for observation. You are welcome to bring along with your own camera or telescope as well.
If you are interested to join, please send us ([email protected]) your name, graduation year and number of participants (esp. children) for confirmation and arrangement.
