Originally commissioned in for the Royal Navy as HMS Bacchante and she was decommissioned in and sunk in On arrival in New Zealand, Wellington was decommissioned and entered a refit which ended in The limited modernization proved difficult and took an unexpected 4 years, when inspected prior to purchase inshe was in the condition expected for a Royal Navy frigate after a dozen years service.
However, in the frigate conducted a four-month winter patrol in the postwar Falklands exclusion zone with the other four RN unmodernised Leanders, sea conditions in the Falkland exclusion zone meant more expensive hull repair was needed. Large-scale energy projects in New Zealand, particularly Marsden Point, resulted in a loss of key dockyard staff, the installation of additional fuel tanks to extend the range of South Pacific operations proved difficult and dirty work.
Although the ship was due to be sunk at 3pm on 12 Novemberthe next day, the sinking was delayed by another 30 minutes due to the entanglement of a detonation cable under the frigate. At 3, 30pm on 13 November, the ship was scuttled, during a storm in Februarythe ship broke up and is now lying in two sections on the seabed close to where it was sunk.
The depth of her keel is approximately 21 metres, making the wreck accessible by scuba divers using standard equipment, frigates of the Royal New Zealand Navy Sunken Treasure - TVNZ video segment on the sinking Sink F69 7.
Aurora — An aurora, sometimes referred to as a polar lights or northern lights, is a natural light display in the sky, predominantly seen in the high latitude regions. The resulting ionization and excitation of atmospheric constituents emits light of varying colour, the form of the aurora, occurring within bands around both polar regions, is also dependent on the amount of acceleration imparted to the precipitating particles. Precipitating protons generally produce optical emissions as incident hydrogen atoms after gaining electrons from the atmosphere, proton auroras are usually observed at lower latitudes.
A region that currently displays an aurora is called the auroral oval, early evidence for a geomagnetic connection comes from the statistics of auroral observations. Elias Loomis, and later Hermann Fritz and S. Tromholt in more detail, day-to-day positions of the auroral ovals are posted on the internet. In northern latitudes, the effect is known as the Aurora Borealis or the Northern Lights, the former term was coined by Galileo infrom the Roman goddess of the dawn and the Greek name for the north wind.
A geomagnetic storm causes the auroral ovals to expand, and bring the aurora to lower latitudes and it was hardly ever seen near the geographic pole, which is about km away from the magnetic pole. The aurora can be seen best at this time, which is called magnetic midnight, Auroras also occur poleward of the auroral zone as either diffuse patches or arcs, which can be sub-visual.
Auroras are occasionally seen in latitudes below the zone, when a geomagnetic storm temporarily enlarges the auroral oval. Large geomagnetic storms are most common during the peak of the sunspot cycle or during the three years after the peak. An aurora may appear overhead as a corona of rays, radiating from a distant and apparent central location, an electron spirals about a field line at an angle that is determined by its velocity vectors, parallel and perpendicular, respectively, to the local geomagnetic field vector B.
The pitch angle increases as the travels to a region of greater field strength nearer to the atmosphere. Thus it is possible for particles to return, or mirror. Other particles that do not mirror enter the atmosphere and contribute to the display over a range of altitudes.
Other types of auroras have been observed from space, e. These are relatively infrequent and poorly understood, there are other interesting effects such as flickering aurora, black aurora and sub-visual red arcs 8.
Light pollution — Light pollution, also known as photopollution, is excessive, misdirected or obtrusive artificial light. Adverse consequences are multiple, some of them may not be known yet, scientific definitions thus include the following, The degradation of photic habitat by artificial light.
The alteration of light levels in the outdoor environment owing to artificial light sources. The alteration of light levels in the environment due to man-made sources of light. Indoor light pollution is such alteration of light levels in the environment due to sources of light. The introduction by humans, directly or indirectly, of light into the environment. The first three of the four scientific definitions describe the state of the environment.
The fourth one describes the process of polluting by light, Light pollution is a side effect of industrial civilization. Its sources include building exterior and interior lighting, advertising, commercial properties, offices, factories, streetlights, since the early s, a global dark-sky movement has emerged, with concerned people campaigning to reduce the amount of light pollution. The International Dark-Sky Association is one non-profit advocacy group involved in this movement, several industry groups also recognize light pollution as an important issue.
For example, the Institution of Lighting Engineers in the United Kingdom provides its members with information about light pollution, the problems it causes, and how to reduce its impact.
Since not everyone is irritated by the same lighting sources, it is common for one persons light pollution to be light that is desirable for another.
One example of this is found in advertising, when an advertiser wishes for particular lights to be bright and visible, other types of light pollution are more certain. For instance, light that crosses a property boundary and annoys a neighbor is generally wasted.
Where objective measurement is desired, light levels can be quantified by field measurement or mathematical modeling, authorities have also taken a variety of measures for dealing with light pollution, depending on the interests, beliefs and understandings of the society involved. Measures range from doing nothing at all, to implementing strict laws, Light pollution is a broad term that refers to multiple problems, all of which are caused by inefficient, unappealing, or unnecessary use of artificial light.
Specific categories of light pollution include light trespass, over-illumination, glare, light clutter, a single offending light source often falls into more than one of these categories 9. One meaning of the name is the headland that eats the wind, Te Raekaihau Point proceeds from the Southern Headlands Reserve and remains an undeveloped interface with the Cook Strait.
The site was the centre of recent controversy as a developer had proposed building an educational and tourist aquarium building on the site.
BBC One - The Apprentice, Series 10 - Meet the Candidates
The point is used for diving, walking, scenic photography, relaxation, picnics, eco-tourism, nature study, and astronomy. The point is free of light pollution, with little nearby population, no street lighting.
The lessened light pollution means that Aurora Australis displays are sometimes visible and it is one of the few undeveloped coastal places within Wellington city. Artists such as Bruce Stewart and Nick Dryden are inspired by this location, Wellington City Council provided backing for the concept in the form of substantial interest-free loans and grants for resource consent applications. Widespread opposition from throughout Wellington sprung up, some believed that the centre would be better sited in a place with an established tourism, parking, and convenience infrastructure.
Residents were also concerned about loss of access to the point, in the second round of submissions, approximately 10, submissions were received, with about half being in favour of the plan and half against. In Septemberthe Environment Court ruled against the developers, with the conclusion that Te Raekaihau Point was most important as a wild, rongotai MP Annette King, who backed the proposal, said another site would have to be considered. The not-for-profit organisations opposing the development also ran up considerable costs, Te Rae Kai Hau Point Fundraising events involving family fun and entertainment have been highly successful, with thousands of people participating this year alone.
Summer Lovin music festival was one event, as part of the Island Bay festival. Many kiwi musicians have donated performances and music, many have written, olmecha Supreme have led the way, headlining many of the events, the next being the Sonic Arts Block Party at Aro basketball courts on May 5.
Rakiura Music is active in fundraising and awareness campaigning, especially opposed to any light pollution, WAS Wellington Astronomical Society opposes light pollution, and whose submission was instrumental in gaining an advisory attached to the consent.
Wadestown, New Zealand — Wadestown is a northern suburb of Wellington, located about 2—3 km by road from the Wellington central business district and the New Zealand Parliament Buildings.
Wadestown is a residential suburb located on the northern flanks of Tinakori Hill. It includes an area on the end of the suburb known as Highland Park.
The suburb is hilly and includes Weld Street which is one of the steepest streets in Wellington. The suburb takes its name from John Wade, who arrived in Wellington in on the vessel Integrity, intogether with another early settler, James Watt, he acquired land in the area now known as Wadestown, and divided it into one and two-acre lots. There are still roads named Wade Street and Watt Street in the suburb, the suburb is a composite of the original Wadestown and the former suburb of Highland Park, which was naturally absorbed by population and housing growth over several decades.
The Wadestown community has high levels of education and income. The Census showed that Wadestown School is a state primary school for Year 1 to Year 8 children.
The school is situated on two sites about 1 km apart, the Side School in Weld Street is designed for new entrants, and consists of parallel junior classes. It provides for children from Year 2 to Year 8, the access to the Main School is by footpath from Mairangi Road at the top of Rose Street, and only limited vehicular access is available. There is also access from Wilton Road via Purakau Avenue.
At the Main School there are four blocks of classrooms at different levels, despite the hilly site, the Main School grounds include landscaped gardens, a playing field, a large flat playground and three tennis courts. The majority of Wadestown pupils come from the suburb but a number also come from Wilton, Chartwell, Thorndon, Khandallah Mount Victoria, Wellington — Mount Victoria is a prominent hill metres high immediately to the east of central Wellington, New Zealand.
About 4 kilometres due south is a spur named Mount Albert, Mount Victorias residential area is on its north-western slopes. One taniwha became stranded and died, and its turned into a bird named Te Keo.
The second name translates as to examine the sky and it was settled as, at its foot, Wellingtons Te Aro filled with commercial activities. Residents needed to be close to the city but wanted more comfortable surroundings, for a long time it was one of Wellingtons sources of fresh milk from its dairy farms. The area features many tracks used for walking and mountain biking, a strong link was forged between Cretans and New Zealanders during World War II.
