Sharad is characterized by clear skies, after three months of rains. Sharad Navratri, are the first nine auspicious days of the season, Sharad Purnima, the full moon day in the month of Ashwin, is celebrated as the day of divine Rasalila by Shri Krishna.[5] That is the brightest full moon night of the year.[6]
