Utahns could see total eclipse of moon Tuesday, weather permitting
SALT LAKE CITY — Weather permitting, Utahns will have an opportunity early Tuesday morning to view a total eclipse of the moon. That’s according to NASA Ambassador to Utah Patrick Wiggins.
Wiggins says Tuesday’s eclipse will happen while the moon is high in the sky. He says it will be a view that all Utahns will be able to see.
According to Wiggins, the eclipse that took place last May was low in the sky, making it hard for some to see.
According to Wiggins, the timeline of the eclipse is as follows in Mountain Standard Time:
- 2:09 – Partial eclipse starts with the moon high in the southwest sky.
- 3:16 – A total eclipse begins with the moon roughly halfway up the southwest sky.
- 3:59 – Full eclipse of the moon.
- 4:41 – Total eclipse comes to an end, partial eclipse starts
- 5:49 – Conclusion of partial eclipse.
Since the totality will happen during the darkest portion of the night, Wiggins says those who are to observe it away from light polluted areas will get to enjoy the full effect.
