VIDEO: Halloween 'blue moon' shines over downtown LA

Did you see it? AIR7 HD was in downtown L.A. and captured the stunning sight of the first Halloween "Blue Moon" since 1944.
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.
