#WinkAtTheMoon for Neil Armstrong!

There is a Blue Moon today, coinciding with a private family memorial service for Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon. In honor of Neil, NASA’s asking that you share publicly your photos of the moon tonight on Google+ and tag them with the hashtag #WinkAtTheMoon .
NASA will repost a gallery on the +NASA page of some of our favorite photos.

After Neil’s passing, his family stated: “For those who may ask what they can do to honor Neil, we have a simple request. Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink.”
