A partial solar eclipse seen in Hong Kong

A partial solar eclipse seen in Southern Hong Kong at 4:08pm on Sunday.

At 2.37pm in Hong Kong on Sunday, the moon appeared to take a bite out of the sun. By 4.08pm about 86 per cent of the sun was blocked. By 5.24pm, the celestial show will be over.

Although it isn’t that long since the last time a partial eclipse of the sun was visible from Hong Kong – a 34 per cent eclipse occurred on December 26 – it might be worth looking for it on Sunday as the next ones of note will not be until 2030, 2031 and 2032.
