Known as the worm moon or sometimes the crow moon.

More on that later. 

Big, bright and beautiful tonight here in Indiana under crystal clear skies.

here is something you probably didn't know about the moon...

My signature is on the moon.

Say what???

Yes. Before the last Apollo mission, they collected the signatures of all the people, who worked on this project, and put them on microfilm. This microfilm was then placed into a cassette and placed on the moon. At that time, I worked at Rockwell International, which designed and built the Command Module.

Well...like they say... with this, and $1.50, I can buy myself a cup of coffee. No big deal.
