    "An unrelated question.
    Could you check with your computer-generated almanach
    whether there was a solar eclipse on July 18 1860,
    full in the North of Canada?"
     
    Yes there was.

And observers apparently saw a coronal mass ejection in progress. Some drawings of the corona during the eclipse:
