(Salt Lake City-AP) -- For the second time this year, the moon's eclipse will be visible from Utah.

Saturday night, the moon will pass into the Earth's shadow. And unlike solar eclipses, the lunar eclipse can be viewed safely with no special equipment.

The earth's shadow should be covering more than half the moon by about five-45 p-m and the total eclipse should happen by six oh-six p-m. The moon will spend less than 30 minutes completely covered and will re-emerge into the light at six-30.

It'll all be over at eight-oh-four.

Weather forecasters say it might be hard to see through expected party-clouded skies.

The last time the eclipse was visible from Utah was in May.

But if you miss it this year, you can catch it again next October.
