The Winter 4×4 Jamboree is a non-competitive guide trail run event for high clearance 4×4 vehicles. Groups of participants are led on rated trails by experienced trail leaders and helpers.
Trails are rated on a 10 point scale, with a rating of 1 for graded roads that may be easily traveled by most cars and a rating of 10 for purpose-built vehicles (buggies) with sophisticated suspensions and drivetrains operated by expert drivers. Trails used for the 2019 Winter 4×4 Jamboree will be from 2 rated trails through 10 rated trails.
A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes completely through the Earth’s dark shadow, or umbra. During this type of eclipse, the Moon will gradually get darker and then take on a rusty or blood red color. The eclipse will be visible throughout most of North America, South America, the eastern Pacific Ocean, western Atlantic Ocean, extreme western Europe, and extreme western Africa.
The two brightest planets, Venus and Jupiter, will appear to have an ultra-close encounter in the evening sky, coming within within 2.4 degrees of each other in the early morning sky. Look for this impressive sight in the east just before sunrise.
