Mid-Autumn festival customs include appreciating the moon, eating mooncakes, solving lantern riddles, and so on.
Appreciating the moon
This year's roundest moon will appear at 17:59 on September 10, which is only visible from the eastern part of Heilongjiang Province in China. But don't be discouraged, the minor difference between the full moon and the fullest is invisible to the naked eye, and residents in most parts of China can enjoy a full moon at the festival night.
