Breathtaking photos capture rare blue moon



Friday night’s blue moon wasn’t blue, but its grandeur still prompted many to look up to the night sky in awe. People from all over the world gawked at the lunar rarity

A blue moon is when two full moons rise in one month and on Friday night, we saw the second full moon of July. We don’t often get two full moons in one month. In fact, the next double feature won’t be until 2018. The last was in 2012
