九月。 中秋節。 元宵節 。 月餅

中秋節On Today it is 29th September 2023  a very longest wintery season since last year- summer is cancelled- spring is only a guest…beginning 29th September 2023 mild cool spring as a guest in with crispy September weather week in which saying happy mid-autumn festival Lantern Festival everyone in which happens to fall on celebrating with mooncakes Description: 🥮… that’s celebrate with family in the Asian Chinese communities… in least than a week time on in which the full moon Description: 🌕on the 29th – September -6th October 2023 in which the celebration festival dates back to the Shang dynasty three thousand years ago before the Zhou Dynasty … storytelling narratives of of the great general lovely devotion for his wife Chang’e of offerings of mooncakes also The traditional lanterns are designed with the lucky color red, among Other popular Moon Festival legends include the Jade Rabbit jade maiden …

In Chinese culture, roundness symbolizes completeness and togetherness. A full moon symbolizes prosperity and reunion for the whole family. Round mooncakes complement the harvest moon in the night sky at the Mid-Autumn Festival..

It is said that if you look up at the moon, you can see an outline of the Jade Rabbit pounding with a pestle. More than just cute, fluffy, and white, the Jade Rabbit is a sign of selflessness, piety, and sacrifice..

中秋節The Mid-Autumn Festival is the festival of Mid-Autumn. It falls in the second month of autumn and is marked by the fifteenth full moon. This day is in the midst of the three autumns, so it is called the “Mid-Autumn Festival”. The moonlight is brighter than usual this night, which is also called “moon eve”. Because the Mid-Autumn Festival falls in autumn and August, it is also known as the “Autumn Festival” and “August Festival”; because of worshiping and worshiping the moon, it is also called the “Moon Festival” and “Moon Festival”; during the Mid-Autumn Festival, families reunite and married daughters go home. Reunion, so it is also called “Reunion Festival” and “Girls’ Day”; in mid-autumn, various fruits are ripe and on the market, so it is called “Fruit Festival”. The Dong people call it “Pumpkin Festival”, and the Mulao people call it “Housheng Festival”. During the Mid-Autumn Festival, people gather to admire the moon, offer sacrifices, and celebrate the harvest. 

The Mid-Autumn Festival is also known as the “Correct Month”. Records about the “Reunion Festival” were first seen in literary works of the Ming Dynasty. “West Lake Tour Zhiyu” says: “August 15th is the Mid-Autumn Festival, and people send moon cakes to each other to symbolize reunion.” “A Brief Introduction to the Scenery of the Imperial Capital” also says: “When worshiping the moon on August 15th, the cakes must be round , the teeth will be wrong when dividing melons, and the petals will be carved like lotus flowers. … If a woman returns to peace, she will return to her husband’s house on this day, which is called the Reunion Festival.”

Initially, the “Moon Festival” was held on the “autumn equinox” day of the 24th solar term in the Ganzhi calendar, but later it was moved to the 15th day of the eighth month of the Xia calendar (lunar calendar). According to the Chinese calendar, the eighth month of the lunar calendar is in the middle of autumn and is the second month of autumn, so it is called “Zhongqiu”. The fifteenth day of August is in the middle of “Zhongqiu”, so it is called “Mid-Autumn Festival

Chasing the moon

The so-called “chasing the moon” means that after the fifteenth day of the eighth lunar month, the excitement is still not over, so on the next night, many people invite relatives and friends to continue admiring the moon, which is called “chasing the moon.” According to the preface to “Lingnan Miscellaneous Notes” by Chen Zihou of the Qing Dynasty: “On the 16th night of August, good people in Guangdong gather relatives and friends to feast and enjoy the moon. This is called chasing the moon.”

Guessing riddles

On the night of the full moon of the Mid-Autumn Festival, many lanterns are hung in public places. People gather together to guess the riddles written on the lanterns. Because it is a favorite activity of most young men and women, and love stories are also spread in these activities, so guessing lantern riddles during the Mid-Autumn Festival A form of love between men and women has also been derived.

Eat mooncakes

Moon cakes, also called moon cakes, harvest cakes, palace cakes, reunion cakes, etc., were tributes to the moon god during the Mid-Autumn Festival in ancient times. Mooncakes were originally used as offerings to worship the moon god. Later, people gradually regarded admiring the moon and tasting mooncakes during the Mid-Autumn Festival as a symbol of family reunion. Moon cakes symbolize reunion, and people regard them as festive food, using them to worship the moon and give them to relatives and friends. Today, eating moon cakes has become a must-have custom for the Mid-Autumn Festival in all parts of northern and southern China. On the Mid-Autumn Festival, people eat moon cakes to show “reunion.”

The “Mysterious Cabin” is like a lifelike rabbit, the scattered stones in front of the “Jade Rabbit” are like a carrot, and the round stone beads behind the “Jade Rabbit” are like the products of the “Jade Rabbit” after a meal. The scene in front of us is like a rabbit about to eat, and the picture is full of fun.

“rabbit” see “rabbit”

At noon on January 6, 2022, the pilots of Yutu No. 2 started the task of the day and afternoon of this month, but everyone worked tirelessly for more than ten hours. Near midnight, the cumulative mileage of Yutu finally broke through the 1,000-meter mark, reaching 1,003.9 meters!
The upcoming January 11, 2022 will be the third anniversary of the Chang’e-4 lander and Yutu-2 completing the mutual shooting of the two vehicles and the complete success of the mission. The latest mileage record is undoubtedly the longest nice gift.

“rabbit” see “rabbit”

Over the past three years, under the precise control of flight controllers, the Chang’e-4 lander, rover, and relay star have completed one arduous task after another, constantly breaking their own records on the way to the back of the moon, and continuing to explore the mysteries of the back of the moon. .
In the next day of the month, Yutu-2 will detect the target rock at close range and perceive the large impact crater behind it. We expect Yutu-2 to make more scientific discoveries.

As of 24th September Thursday 2020, The CNSA –China National Space Administration Belt and Road Initiative Lunar Mission on the One Hundred Kilometer diameter Von Karman Crater    Chang’e 4 lander and the “Yutu 2” lunar rover the Chang’e-4 lander and the “Yutu-2” lunar rover… Chang’e 4 lander and “Yutu 2” lunar rover awakened autonomously and entered the 22nd day of work] Today, the Chang’e 4 lander and “Yutu 2” lunar rover, which have been working on the back of the moon for 630 days…..  In following.. The Chang’e-4 lander and the “Yutu-2” lunar rover will finish the 22nd month day work at 7:30 on September 24 and 23:18 on the 23rd, and complete the moon night mode setting according to ground instructions, and enter moon night sleep. Up to now, Chang’e-4 has spent 630 Earth days on the back of the moon and travelled 547.17 meters cumulatively.

Based on the 21st month day panoramic camera stitched images, DOM images and other data, the “Yutu 2” lunar rover mainly travels during the 22nd month day, successively in the impact crater and reflection about 1.3km northwest of the landing site Areas with higher rates were detected.

Researchers have made use of data such as panoramic camera ring-shot detection, infrared imaging spectrometer calibration detection, and simultaneous detection of lunar radar during driving, and obtained a number of scientific results, which were recently published in the International Journal of Nature Astronomy.

The scientific team conducted in-depth research on the radar detection data and obtained important discoveries about the lunar soil and shallow structures in the landing zone. Based on the characteristics of low-frequency radar signals, as shown in Figure 1, the shallow structure of the landing area is divided into three basic units, from top to bottom there are strong reflection units (unit 1), weak reflection units (unit 2), and medium reflection units. Unit (Unit 3). Combining basic constraints such as regional geology and the spatial distribution of large-scale impact craters, the results of the geological interpretation are as follows: Unit 1 (total thickness of about 130m) is the accumulation of sputtering materials near multiple impact craters (including Finsen, Alder, and von Carmen). Impact craters such as L and L’) and the basalt breccia layer at the bottom; unit 2 (total thickness about 110 m) is a basalt layer with multiple eruptions; unit 3 (thickness not less than 200 m) is Leibniz in the north of the landing zone Spatter from impact craters. The high-frequency radar signal further gives the fine structure of the upper part of the unit 1, as shown in Figure 2, which is characterized by the presence of a 12m thick lunar soil layer on the top, which basically does not contain large rocks, and the bottom is a strip of 22m thick Sputters, they are all projectiles from the Finsen impact crater, with a total thickness of 34m.

    The lunar radar carried by the “Yutu-2” lunar rover can obtain the geological section below the driving path and reveal the layered structure of the underground. Because the lunar radar is directly based on the lunar surface for detection, the reflected signal detected by it has large energy and clear characteristics, and the effect is far better than that of spaceborne radars more than 100km away from the lunar surface. Moreover, due to the use of a frequency much higher than 5MHz of the spaceborne radar, its resolution advantage is also very obvious. The main frequencies of the two channels of the lunar radar are 60MHz and 500MHz, the spatial resolution is 10m and 0.3m, and the detection depth is about 50m and 500m. The high-frequency channel is used to detect the high-resolution structure of the shallow lunar soil and its underlying sputter, and the low-frequency channel is used to detect the layered structure of the deep sputter and basalt.

Figure 2 The detection profile and interpretation result of the high-frequency channel of the lunar radar

The shallow structural profile obtained by the lunar radar shows that the lunar material detected by “Yutu 2” comes from the Finsen impact crater, not from the filling basalt of the von Karman impact crater itself; at the same time, the radar profile also reveals the landing area has experienced multiple impacts, sputtering accumulation and multiple basalt magma eruptions filling. These new discoveries are of great significance for understanding the evolution of the Moon’s South Pole-Aiken Basin, and have an important guiding role for the subsequent exploration and study of the composition and structure of the Moon’s internal material.
