Astronauts looking west towards the setting Sun were able to see this high-contrast detail even though the center of the glint point was 1,000 kilometers (600 miles) away from the ISS. The sunglint shows Wellington Bay—where the capital city is located—opening onto Cook Strait…

A twelve-year-old Auckland athlete has become the youngest female to swim the Cook Strait. Just a couple of months shy of her 13th birthday, Caitlin O'Reilly swam ashore after 7 hours 19 minutes 15 seconds just north of Perano Head in the Marlborough Sounds, just after 9.30pm on Friday to roars of approval from her support team.
