At some point between the end of Civil twilight and the end of the Lunar eclipse the loss of “street lighting” may have been noticeable. Unfortunately the Moon was only in the Penumbra of the Earth’s shadow from 18:20 onwards and the Moon would have been getting brighter all the time.
That this eclipse occurred in the thirty third “year of our Lord” (AD) and on a Friday is obviously significant. It should however be noted that the eclipse would not have been visible in Rome, but would have more noticeable to the east (Babylon/ Persia.)
If texts were modified to fit known events then they were altered to fit eastern records rather than Roman ones.
