FOR RELEASE WITH STORY BC-HONGKONG-MOON - Hong Kong children select lanterns on display outside a store in Sheung Wan. When Chinese bite into their mooncakes to celebrate the annual autumn festival this year, the moon itself will be "eaten". In a rare occurrence, Hong Kong revellers celebrating the centuries-old Mid-Autumn Moon Festival will see a total lunar eclipse, where the earth's shadow will appear to "eat" the full moon.
