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.
