So I tried to research this, and it turns out it might've just been some lunar eclipse that happened.
Not shitting on it, and yeah, by all means make a map about it (and this one is a handsome one). But it wasn't like some "big deal" eclipse that made King George kill all of his butlers or anything.
There was, though, born during the eclipse a champion racehorse that was, by virtue of the conditions surrounding his birth, named "Eclipse".
