 A rare "Blue Moon" will be visible in southeast Michigan.  The moon won't actually appear blue, but gets it's name because it is only visible every 2 to 3 years.

I had the chance to speak to the director of the Sherzer Observatory at Eastern Michigan University, Norbert Vance and he shares information on a number of interesting things visible right now in the night sky.

LISTEN HERE:
Sherzer Observatory will be open this evening from 9pm to midnight for views of the lovely moonrise, Saturn in the large telescope, and even a flyover of the International Space Station across the southern sky at 10:20pm. It's all free and open to the public.
