Sunday evening, weather permitting, there will be a lunar eclipse. KRCL's Lara Jones has Just One Question: What would you see if you were standing on the moon? To find out, she spoke with Patrick Wiggins, NASA Solar System Ambassador and a member of the Salt Lake Astronomical Society:

J1Q - Moon View of Lunar Eclipse


This weekend's eclipse is also a "Super Moon," which will "reach 33.6 arc minutes during the eclipse. It reaches its maximum of 33.9 arc minutes, for the year, at 1:28 a.m. This will be the "Blood Moon" you want to see. It will rise at about 8:00 p.m. already partially eclipsed. It will be fully eclipsed for about 1 hour and 15 minutes." Source: Salt Lake Astronomical Society. 

Join the society Sunday evening in the parking lot of Harmon's, 125 E. 13800 S., Draper, for a lunar eclipse watch. It's free!
