They're rare, because even though Earth is constantly projecting a huge shadow into space (due to the fact that the sun is always shining on it), the moon rarely enters that shadow. It's a little bit not up to the theoretical limit of the lunar Eclipse (one hour and 47 minutes). However, their appearances are very different.
In the period immediately following the formation of the Moon, it was likely producing an abundance of water vapor which, scientists say, may have been enough for larger bodies of water to collect on its surface. Looking directly at that light requires special glasses to protect the eyes from the sun's brightness. That's because the moon has no atmosphere. Lunar eclipses happen when the moon passes behind the Earth into its shadow. That time period, the new study suggests, was the first time conditions on the moon could have supported life.
Next week, Mars will be closest ever to Earth than it has been in the last 15 years.
By volume, about 80% of Earth's atmosphere is made of nitrogen gas, or N2, and most of the rest is oxygen gas, or O2. Human eyes are much more sensitive to blues than purples, which is why the sky looks blue and the sun yellow to us during daylight hours.
When we look for signs of life on other planets and moons, clues that can indicate a climate supportive to life include liquid water, an atmosphere that would help keep water stable on the surface, a magnetic field offering protection from solar and cosmic radiation, and organic compounds that could make up life's building blocks.

It depends partly on "how cloudy or transparent those parts of the Earth's atmosphere are which enable sunlight to reach the moon", Bailey told Agence France-Presse (AFP).

In London, moonrise is at 20.49, so the moon will already be in the shadow of Earth as darkness falls over the capital.
