“Once in a blue moon”

31 Aug

We lost our first moonwalker last Saturday when the legendary Neil Armstrong died at age 82. According to his family, he never fully recovered from heart surgery he had a while back. While you soak in this last day of August, don’t forget to look up into the sky after nightfall. It’s a “Blue Moon.” That’s what you call the second full moon during one calendar month. They don’t happen very often. There won’t be another blue moon until 2015. No, it won’t be “blue,” but it’s mighty pretty 🙂 I also found it somewhat fitting to reflect on the lunar event as Armstrong is laid to rest today. Space.com is reporting a special honor for Armstrong. Read more about that here.

Enjoy your Labor Day Weekend and be safe!

See you in the morning!
