Blue Moon to Brighten the Sky Tonight
Rare event won't happen again until 2015.
There's a special full moon tonight and if you miss it, you won't get to see it again until July 2015.
Tonight's moon is called a blue moon, which means that it's the second full moon in a calendar month, according to Sky & Telescope.
Blue moons happen once every 2.7 years, Sky & Telescope says. SPACE.com adds that this month's first full moon occurred Aug. 1.
The National Weather Service forecast calls for partly cloudy skies tonight. Should it be too cloudy to see the blue moon, SPACE.com reports that the web-based Slooh Space Camera will host a broadcast of the blue moon that will include a tribute to late astronaut Neil Armstrong.
