Astronomer Bob Berman says, this time a lunar eclipse is special because no other celestial body that looks bright in the morning sky: Mars.
"This is a very special thing, even I think, in our lifetime," said Berman. "What makes it more special is the eclipse occurs at the same time when the Earth is closest in distance to Mars."
Red Planet on Monday 14 April 2014, being the closest distance to the Earth since 2008 which is 92.4 million kilometers.
So, Mars and the moon shine at the same blood. It was a rare event, fact, Berman added, the existence of Spica, the bright blue star in the morning it increasingly makes more remarkable.
"We will never again, as long as the rest of our lives, to see the total lunar eclipse on the same night when Mars was the closest point to the Earth," said Berman.
Lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes through Earth's shadow. Earth's shadow is composed of two parts: a dark core called the "umbra," and the outside of the lighter-called "penumbra.
Depending on how the conditions of the Earth's atmosphere through which the light of the Sun, umbra can be colored from bright copper-red-black to almost total.
