Well if you missed it as I did ..not to worry..Theres another one coming up esp Africa , India, Europe, Asia way.. and most of Oz should see at least totality ..but Eastern States not the ending of it.
Here's a terrific site were you can see whats going to transpire from your location...check the tables.

PS: Did you know a Solar Eclipse occurs about 2 weeks, before or after a Lunar Eclipse seen somewhere on Earth.

From what I've read in Astronomy 2018 by Quasar Pub. the next lunar eclipse is on Saturday morning the 28th July. The date you saw may have been for Europe, Africa and the Americas, where it would be before midnight their time.
