The Hong Kong Space Museum is dedicated to promoting astronomy and space science to the public. During the year, the museum strengthened its astronomical observation activities. It was opened to the public on June 8 to allow about 3,000 people to observe the planet Venus passing the Sun's disc through the Solar Telescope and other equipment. The Space Museum broadcast this rare astronomical event with the Hong Kong Observatory through the Internet.
