Escabar_MimiFor those planning a quick trip to the Eastern Hemisphere (Europe, Africa, Australia and most of Asia) on Thursday, April 25, there will be a partial lunar eclipse. It will be a very minor partial lunar eclipse, with the moon’s uppermost limb merely grazing the Earth’s umbral shadow. At mid-eclipse, less than 2 percent of the moon’s diameter will be inside the dark shadow. Maybe save the eclipse trip for Oct. 18 when there will be a penumbral eclipse of the Moon. This is where the Moon slides through the northern part of the Earth’s penumbral shadow. At mid-eclipse, 76 percent of the moon’s diameter will be in the penumbra. The best viewing region includes much of Asia, Europe and Africa. The central and eastern portion of North America will get a view of the slightly darkened Hunters’ Moon during the early evening hours.

 

Talent galore

There will definitely be some good listening at the Wine Smith, 346 Main St. in Placerville. On Friday, April 26 the very accomplished Jonny Mojo will be playing at 8:30 p.m. Then on Saturday, April 27 vocalist extraordinaire Tamra Godey will be entertaining at 8:30 p.m. Stop by one of the nights or both for a great time. For more information call 530-622-0516.

 

Special concert

The musical talent continues at the Shingle Springs Community Center, 4440 South Shingle Road in Shingle Springs, with a special concert by Keith Greeninger on Saturday, April 27. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for this benefit for eLife Adventure. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.

Swinging time

Zia’s Italian Caffé and Gelato Bar, 312 Main St. in Placerville, keeps the good music groove going with the return of Jazz Gitan on Saturday, April 27 from 7 to 9 p.m. Stop in to enjoy some cool swinging jazz of the ’30s and ’40s with a Parisian influence. To get more details call 530-642-9427.

 

Paella and more

Holly’s Hill Vineyards, 3680 Leisure Lane in the Pleasant Valley area, is having a Thank You Club Members lunch on Saturday, April 27 and Sunday, April 28 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The menu is Patriarche and paella, duck pate and a Spanish inspired salad. Josh will be cooking paella in the 3 foot pan. Cost is $5 for non-club members. Reservations are needed and can be made by calling 530-344-0227.
