氣象局表示,夕陽在每日預報區間的中位時間到達街心位置。夕陽到達街道視覺中心位置的時間,依觀測者位於街道不同點而有些微差異。

The sun will set at the center of the street at the median time of the daily forecast interval, according to the CWB. The time at which the setting sun reaches the visual center of the street varies slightly depending on where the observer is located on the street. 

若你打算趁著週末假日欣賞懸日美景,務必注意較長時間目視必須配戴深色太陽眼鏡,以免傷眼。賞美景時,也須注意維持交通秩序!

If you plan to enjoy the mesmerizing sunsets this weekend, be sure to wear dark sunglasses for longer periods of time to avoid eye strain. Be careful to maintain traffic order while enjoying the scenery, too!
