Moon Viewing at Library Garden

If you look, you often find wonders at the Library – big and small, indoors and outdoors. Admire this full moon captured on November 27 by my colleague Ada, Head of Resource Management.  It was taken from the Library Garden.  Doesn’t it put us all in awe?

I am entranced every time I see the Moon rise over the sea by our campus. At HKUST, you can find many spots that give you an open view facing east, such as the lookout at Atrium (“Mushroom Window”) and the Fok Ying Tung Sports Center at Seafront. To me, my favourite spot is of course the Library Garden! When the weather is comfortable, like recent days, the Library Garden is a beautiful place to take a break from your study, to have some fresh air, to hang out with friends, or just to have some time alone with the view, daytime or night. And, don’t forget, you can say “Hello” to George too!

Ada took this poetic photo a little after 6pm. According to the moon phase calendar of the Hong Kong Observatory, full moon that day was at 5:16pm, not long before the photo was taken.  No wonder the moonlight was so amazing! Ada also shared other moon photos with me; and I also like this one with the Moon lurking behind the Library building.
