SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A rare red moon could be seen over Utah early this morning.

The full eclipse turned the moon reddish brown for about an hour and a half.


Astronomers say it was an event that won't show itself again for another three years.

The moon was full and high above the horizon when it entered Earth's shadow for the eerie display.
