Lunar Ellipse!!

There was a lunar eclipse for the United States in the Fall of 1996. I heard a local Washington D.C. reporter refer to it as the "lunar ellipse". Perhaps it could only be seen from the White House?

For those not local to DC, there is a section of downtown DC called the Ellipse, where the White House sits. The National Christmas Tree is set up there every year.
