Astronauts from the Apollo era and forward joined Neil Armstrong's family to celebrate the life of the first human to set foot on the moon.
As a blue moon rose Friday, people across the country celebrated the life of Neil Armstrong, who in 1969 became the first human to set foot on the moon.
The blue moon Friday is on the same day of a private memorial service for Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon. A blue moon occurs when there's a second full moon in one calendar month. It won't happen again until July 2015.
Astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first human to set foot on the moon, is remembered by his family as a 'reluctant American hero.'
