 Mid-Autumn Festival of this year, the fifteenth moon, the sixteenth round the most round time at noon


Xinhua News Agency, Tianjin, September 9, the Mid-Autumn Festival is approaching, and its another year to enjoy the moon. Astronomical experts said that since the look time appeared on the 16th lunar month in mid-August of this years lunar calendar, as last year, the Mid-Autumn Moon of this year is still the 16th full moon of the 15th year, and the fullest moment appears at 12:33 on the 14th.

Why is the moon in the fifteenth year round in the sixteenth year? Li Meizhong, deputy director of Tianjin Astronomical Society, explained that on the first day of the lunar calendar, we cant see the moon, which is called New Moon or Shuo. By the fifteenth day of the lunar calendar, we can see the full moon, also known as Full Moon, or Wangwang.

The lunar revolution around the earth is sometimes fast and sometimes slow. From Shuo to Wangwang to Shuo, the average period experienced is 29.53 days. So, although the average time required for the moon to move from Shuo to Watch is about 14 days, 18 hours and 22 minutes, it will actually be slightly longer and sometimes slightly shorter than this average time.

According to the lunar calendar law, Shuo is on the first day of every month. But on the same day as the first day of junior middle school, Shuo may occur in the morning, or in the morning, afternoon, or at night, and each new moon itself has its own length. In this way, the look at the fullest moment of the moon can occur as early as the night of the 14th lunar calendar and as early as the morning of the 17th lunar calendar. But because Shuo must be on the first day of the lunar calendar, Shuo after an average of 14 days, 18 hours and 22 minutes is the look, so the moons most round time look to appear in the fifteenth and sixteenth days of the lunar calendar, of which the most is the sixteenth lunar calendar. Li Meizhong said that although the fullest time of the Mid-Autumn Moon appears at noon on the 16th day of the lunar calendar, it does not affect peoples appreciation of the Moon at Mid-Autumn night. Whether the moon is the roundest or not has no effect on ordinary peoples appreciation of the moon. As far as naked eye observation is concerned, the moon of the 15th, 16th and 17th year is not much different. The same beads are round and graceful, the same plump and plump, and the same flowers are full and round. Source: Xu Meng-NN7485, responsible editor of Xinhua
