Roundest Moon on the day after Moon Day

Today is September 23, one day after Mid-Autumn Festival ( or Moon Day ). There is a Chinese saying goes that the 16th day’s moon is rounder and brighter than the 15th’s of the eighth month according to Chinese lunar year. It is said that this phenomenon is scientifically reaffirmed.
As uaual, I walked home after day’s office work. In the midldle of the flyover at Guangjumen, I looked eastward and came across a brighter and rounder moon hanging in the sky against the backdrop of the buildings below. It is a amazing sight. I mechanically took out my camera and  grabbed several pictures of the full moon. I now choose one of them for you to share the beautiful moon in Beijing on the 16th day of eighth month in the lunar year of 2010.
