Eerie Pennsylvania

Boing Boing pointed to a NASA article about the coming lunar eclipse, which will transform the moon to a deep reddish color. I wonder whether there’s any way of checking to see whether there was such an eclipse thirty or so years back; I remember driving eastward along the Pennsylvania Turnpike one night, when I emerged from one of the famous Turnpike Tunnels (perhaps the Allegheny Mountain Tunnel?), and as the horizon opened before me I saw a deep red full moon. It spooked me; surely a blood red moon made an ominous harbinger for a long solo drive — but the drive was otherwise uneventful. Just unnerving.
