The harvest moon will shine brightly tonight, accompanied by faint sightings of Jupiter, Saturn and Venus. Several eastern and southeastern Asian cultures hold spiritually significant celebrations around the time of the harvest moon. For me, I used to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival, which involves family reunions, moon gazing and the sharing of "moon cakes." In Korea, a similar festival, known as Chuseok, is celebrated around the time of the Harvest Moon. People travel to their ancestral and parental homes, where they eat traditional sweets, play games and hold ceremonies in honor of their ancestors.
These are realistic carvings of moons from the pryrite stone, which are then coated with aura for the multi-hued colors.
