Hong Kong Observatory Calendar 2016
is on sale now!


photo by Henry Wong


The Theme of the Calendar


The calendar contains many beautiful weather photos taken in Hong Kong. Same as last year, these photos were collected by the Observatory from the social media. Some photos show relatively rare phenomena such as anti-crepuscular rays and fallstreak hole. Furthermore, Asperitas, the first new cloud type to be officially recognised by the World Meteorological Organization since 1951, has been captured in photo for the first time in Hong Kong.

This year, each calendar photo provides a Quick Response (QR) code for readers to access materials explaining different weather phenomena and corresponding information.



Information in the Calendar


The calendar also contains useful climatological and astronomical information, including monthly climatological data and climatological events, the times for the rising and setting of the sun and the moon, dates of eclipses of the sun and the moon, and tidal information.
