Total lunar eclipse meets supermoon Sunday night: The moon, Earth and sun will line up this weekend for the only total lunar eclipse this year and next. At the same time, the moon will be ever so closer to Earth and appear slightly bigger and brighter than usual — a supermoon. If the skies are clear, the entire eclipse will be visible in North and South America, as well as Greenland, Iceland, Ireland, Great Britain, Norway, Sweden, Portugal and the French and Spanish coasts. The rest of Europe, as well as Africa, will have partial viewing before the moon sets. Starts here at 03:36 Monday morning 21JAN. Ends about 07:40. Click this link for an exact schedule for viewing from Torrox. https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/in/@6544315

The band was founded in 2014 has worked with various musicians from its start and the current line-up is 8 musicians which all are at the top level off the Andalusian jazz.
The repertoire of the band consists mostly of original compositions, as well as jazz standards and is also inspired by Funk and Soul.

Renting Information required: Hello, I am renting out a villa in Competa campo and finally, have a user name and password to enter details of guests with their Guardia Civil. I’m not currently living in Spain so trying to sort this remotely before the spring season starts.
What I don’t have is the Web site address to log on to their system. Does anyone have this? Also, can anyone advise if it is only the passport details that are required I.e. number, date of issue and country of issue or if a copy of the passport needs to be scanned in? I have also heard a form for each guest, over the age of 16, has to be signed. Anyone know if this form is printable from their web site and if the Guardia civil need a signed copy? If so do I have to keep a second copy?
Any help would be gratefully appreciated. Many thanks Jan.
