Besides, it was the last chance to see the "incredible" red lunar eclipse with the moon and the rising sun in the sky at the same time. Unlike solar, lunar eclipse - a fairly common phenomenon, occurring on average every two years. And all because the moon is one-third smaller than Earth, so it fits easily in the shadow of our planet. In the photo: The moon over the Golden Gate Bridge. (AP)
