Today, a private funeral service will be held in Cincinnati for Neil Armstrong. Local aviation photographer Dan Patterson has this remembrance of the first man to walk on the moon.

Friday's Blue Moon a Chance to Honor Armstrong

Blue Moon Rises
Hefhoover

Less than a week after astronaut Neil Armstrong’s passing, there's a rare 'blue moon' on Friday’s cosmic calendar.

That's the day of a private service for Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, who died last Saturday in Ohio at age 82.

A blue moon occurs when there's a second full moon in one calendar month. It won't happen again until July 2015. The full moon cycle is 29.5 days so a blue moon is uncommon and has come to mean something rare. The moon actually won't be colored blue.
