The best times to view the moon during the Mid-Autumn Festival will be near midnight on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday when it is at its highest point, the Hong Kong Observatory says. There will be a full moon on Monday and close to full on Sunday and Tuesday, Hong Kong Observatory's scientific officer, Leung Yin-kong, said. 'The moon will rise in the east, will be near to the south at the time of transit, then set in the west.' Mr Leung said open spaces would be conducive to better moon-watching. On Sunday, the moon will rise at 5.09pm, cross the sky at 11.13pm and set at 5.21 the next morning. The day of the Mid-Autumn Festival, Monday, the moon will rise at 5.56pm, cross the sky just after midnight and set in the west at 6.25am on Tuesday. A nearly full moon will rise at 6.43pm on Tuesday, be at its highest point just after 1am, and set at 7.30am the next day. The Peak Tram will run overnight on October 5 to the next morning and KCR services will be extended - the last train to Hunghom from Sheung Shui will leave at 1.30am, the last return trip will be at 2am. KCR East Rail will put on two more Guangzhou through-trains from tomorrow until Tuesday.
