From the photographer, who also shared this link about the holiday’s significance with us:
Took a pic this morning [Ed. -- yesterday morning] of the 2012′s Harvest moon over Sheepshead Bay Station. The Chinese celebrate it as the Mid-Autumn Festival. It’s our Thanksgiving. People travel long distances to be with their families and the holiday lasts for a week. Mooncakes are traditionally eaten. Sunday was the start of the festivities.
