Today, our solar system will offer a playful 'wink' at first man on the moon, Niel Armstrong.
A private service will be held of Armstrong Friday after he passed away in Ohio Saturday, according to Fox 6.
But don't expect to see moon take on a true, blue hue. A blue moon refers to the rarity of multiple full moons in a month or season. Friday's full moon will be the second in August. The first took place on Aug. 1.
Two blue moons in a month typically occurs every 2.7 years, according to the Huffington Post.
The last blue moon was on Dec. 31, 2009, and the next won't occur until 2015.
Best time to see the Blue Moon: The moon will be at its fullest at 8:58 a.m. CST, according to the Farmers' Almanac.
And if you're looking for a special way to celebrate the rare, celestial site, a blog by the Lake Michigan Swimmers said they will celebrate with at Klode Park with a Blue Moon beer toast at 6:30 p.m. followed by a Lake Michigan swim.
