Lunar eclipse over Utah yesterday


A partial lunar eclipse was visible over the Western U.S. yesterday. The eclipse was the longest in 580 years, beginning around 11 pm and lasting just over 6 hours. The eclipse was visible throughout the United States, but viewers in the West were likely to experience the most dramatic vista, with the maximum phase occurring long before sunrise, contrasting against a dark sky.  The eclipse peaked in the Utah sky at 2 a.m. Friday morning.
