World Golf Championships - Mexico Championship - Mickelson,McIlroy in contention

Phil Mickelson staged an amazing recovery in Saturday's third round of the WGC-Mexico Championship.Mickelson hit only 4 of 18 fairways,but hit 8 of 18 greens.It was typical Phil as he played worst in the field on the fairways;but,at the same time,was best in strokes gained on the greens.He birdied on three consecutive holes,15-17.Although he bogeyed the 18th,Mickelson still shot a three under 68 for the day,landing him in third place with Rory McIlroy,who is coming off an eight-week layoff with a cracked rib,for Sunday's final round.
McIlroy said that,if he had played the fairways like Mickelson,he'd have shot an 80.The golfers are building up to the year's first major,The Masters in early April.
The tournament is being played at an altitude of 7800 feet at the Club de Golf Chapulpetec in Mexico City.*

Major Astronomical Night Friday

Three significant astronomical events are occurring tonight.If you are in Europe,West Asia or Africa,they may already be occurring.You must consult your local news media for exact details for your area.
First,it is the night of the Snow Moon,the first full moon of February.Native American tribes gave a name to each full moon,and this is the name they gave to February's full moon,as February is typically the snowiest month of the year in North America.They also called it the Hunger Moon,because it was rather difficult to find food in this cold winter month.It will also be visible tomorrow night.*
Second,it is the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse.The Moon will be passing through Earth's outer shadow,taking on a slightly grayish appearance-not spectacular looking,but of interest nonetheless.It will be visible in Eastern North and South America;Europe;Africa;and West Asia.Again,you must check your local media for the times to look in your area.The North American times in EST are:
Begins at 5:34 pm EST;
Greatest extent at 7:44 pm EST;
Ends at 9:53 pm EST.*
Finally,Comet 45p will reach its closest point to Earth,7.4 million miles away.Best time to look in North America is 3:00 am EST in the Eastern sky.Naked eye viewing is a long shot;binoculars or a telescope are pretty much required.Even in good binoculars,it will be a blue-green hazy patch.It has a blue-green head and a tail.Do not expect to see the comet's structure.That requires a telescope with a camera attached taking a long exposure photograph.The comet may be located at various points in the night sky in the coming weeks.It will return in 2022.

About the New George Harrison Video "What Is Life"

The new George Harrison video is the winner of a competition.It was selected by Harrison's widow,Olivia,and son,Dhani,and is licensed by the G.H. Estate Ltd.The video was published on 29 November 2016.*
Starring in the video is Emma Rubinowitz,and she is the real deal,that is,a professional ballerina and member of the corps de ballet of the San Francisco Ballet.Her dancing partner is Esteban Hernandez,who is also with the San Francisco Ballet.*
The track is from Harrison's epic album "All Things Must Pass" and was produced by Beatles friend and "Let It Be" producer Phil Spector,who also did some producing for John Lennon and other sixties artists.*
At first,The Taylor Star didn't get it;but then decided that the video,with its context of young love,gives a second life to the song,and so should be considered an overall success.*
