Hey Space Placers!
It is Blue Moon Friday, 8-31-12, or in popular parlance, the second Full Moon in a month.
Read all about it here: http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2012/29aug_bluemoon/ and http://www.skyandtelescope.com/about/pressreleases/A-Blue-Moon-Heralds-the-Harvest-167184095.html.
The next Blue Moon won't be until July 2015, so enjoy!.
While you are looking take a moment to say hello to Neil Armstrong - his private funeral will take place on the same day as the Blue Moon - fitting I think for the first human to walk on another world.
