Stansbury Park, UT – A full lunar eclipse last week gave Utahns an uncommon sight of the moon. That's when the moon passes through the earth's shadow. It's been several years since the last one was visible from Utah. Tuesday morning, a few hours before dawn, amateur astronomers gathered at Stansbury Park Observatory, half an hour west of Salt Lake City, to watch the event. Reporter Sheri Quinn has this audio portrait.
