The blue moon made its debut this morning, and it's unlike anything we've seen since 2012 and won't see again until 2018.
Here's some interesting details about Friday's blue moon: http://at.wftv.com/1DVSxni #WFTV

Almost two years after 8-year-old Julia Cobb died from a rare bone and tissue cancer, her family walked about 20 miles a day from Disneyland in California, where they had gone months before Julia's death, to Disney World in Orlando, where she died on her Make-A-Wish trip in October 2013.
