From Chinese Lore, The ''Moon Rabbit'' is a Pareidolian ''image'' experienced by some when viewing The Moon at certain phases. Many Centuries old (perhaps even 4,000 years), The ''Moon Rabbit'' is best ''seen'' during Full Phase. A ''trick of light'', The Rabbit is seen leaning over a Mortar (pounding plate), and is ''making the ingredients for Lunar or Moon Rice Cakes (a common treat for Chinese New Year)''. See The Rabit in it's entirety was considered ''good luck''. Even The Ancient Aztec Peoples of The Americas, had a ''Moon Rabbit'' variation proving that more than one Culture could ''see The Rabbit''. Winter Month's are best for viewing and of course depending on where in The World One lives.
