A historical stone pillar stands in the Observatory Headquarters at a location where the staff pass along every day.   What is the original purpose of this pillar?  It has indeed a very close connection with one of the main purposes for the establishment of the Observatory - “Time Service”.  Let’s introduce it to you in this new episode of “Cool Met Stuff”.

The video is now available on the "MyObservatory" mobile application and the Observatory's website for your viewing (programme is broadcasted in Cantonese).
