DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES (KABC) — The skies gave us the perfect spooky setting for Halloween night known as the blue moon.

The phenomenon happens whenever there are two full moons in the same month — hence the saying “once in a blue moon.”

The last full moon was October 1 – setting us up for this rare event.

AIR7 HD captured the moon as it rose to the east of downtown Los Angeles.
