It would have been really cool if they had. I was really halfway expecting it, they've been so spot on with the rest of the app.Apple missed a great opportunity to wow users here.
well, only 17 years and some change, (2033) .. who knows what sort of tech we'll have by then. I bet the eclipse will be covered by then.Yeah, totally agree! would have been pretty neat if they could have shown the eclipse and the red moon. Guess we can always wait for another 30 years....
Yes, it also does depend on where you live.Lunar eclipses happen pretty regularly. The next one is in 2018. I think it's the combination of a supermoon with an eclipse that won't happen for years. The whole supermoon thing is really hyped up by the media - most people wouldn't notice unless you told them.

Next supermoon lunar eclipse doesn't happen until 2033Supermoons are full moons that occur at or near perigee. Such full moons appear about 14 percent larger and 30 brighter in the sky than apogee full moons (which are also called "minimoons"). Every supermoon is therefore a worthy skywatching target. And a supermoon total lunar eclipse — that's a really big deal.Only five such eclipses occurred in the entire 20th century (in 1910, 1928, 1946, 1964 and 1982), NASA experts have said. ("Normal" total lunar eclipses, on the other hand, aren't terribly rare; a skywatcher at any particular spot on the globe can expect to see such an event once every 2.5 years or so.)
Or.... both?So, what if you're in a place where the eclipse wasn't visible?
You seriously expect apple to do the programming needed to -A: figure out where and when the eclipse would happen (load an ephemeris) and -B: dynamically shade the complication- which may or may not even be in use- for a tiny percentage of watch users, and for essentially a one-time two hour event?
I guarantee more people would think something had broken than would be delighted by the complication behaving in such a manner.
No thank you, I would prefer the people doing the work to be killing bugs in the system rather than focus on such frivolity.
