Rare Blue Moon Falls on Neil Armstrong's Memorial

Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, died in Ohio on Saturday, August 25, 2012, according to his family. He was 82 years old. Tomorrow, Friday, August 31st, will mark a rare event, a blue moon, which, if you don't already know, is a second full moon in one calendar month. This won't occur again until July 2015 they say, so you can see how the event gave rise to the saying, "once in a blue moon." Well the family of Neil Armstrong is planning a memorial for the astronaut on the same day, which means that fate must be smiling down on him.
