Local Observation Condition is estimated by the effect of moonlight during maximum and whether the observation period is favourable to Hong Kong. It is divided into five levels, which are “Bad”, “Unfavourable”, “Fair”, “Favourable” and “Excellent”. In the coming April Lyrids, you will have the chance to witness dazzling display of shooting stars streaking across the sky! Visit YHA Ngong Ping SG Davis Youth Hostel and our astrophile will be giving you the best guide of stargazing!
