Chinese Moon Festival day is on 15th moon day, not the full moon day. In China, the full moon day is on 08-25-2010 early morning. That means in the night of 17th moon day, the moon will look fuller in China. This in very uncommon, usually, the full moon day of 8th lunar month falls on the 16th day. It's same to US time zones, two days after of Moon Festival day, the moon will be fuller in the night.

The Moon Festival is a holiday in China. It's an occasion for family reunion. Chinese families like to get together to eat the moon cakes and watch the moon at the Moon Festival night.
