The Lunar Eclipse

I found today’s feature quite interesting.  On this date in 1638, the first recorded astronomical event happened in the American colonies–a lunar eclipse.  It was a bit of an unnerving experience, for sure, for the American colonists.  In fact,  Anne Hutchinson’s expulsion  (religious dissident–read about her here) may have even been somewhat connected to this event.  It was five months after that event, and they may have seen it as confirmation that they acted correctly.  Interesting observation, to be sure.
