The motif of the calendar is summarised in the preface by the Director of the Observatory, Dr Lee Boon-ying, "Since its establishment in 1883, the Observatory has been committed to the application of science in ensuring public safety and mitigating the threats of natural disasters.  Through active data exchange and scientific pursuits, it also contributes to the well-being of the local society, neighbouring regions and the international community."
