Was the story set in contemporary China? There everyone uses Beijing time so the clock may say midnight when astronomically it’s 8PM if you are as far west as you can get. Tibet is mountainous so with some help from a nearby peak we might manage to have the moon ‘rising’ while being full and the clock showing midnight.
