Photographer exposes the sun’s surface

SUN MAN: New Brighton amateur astronomer Sai Shankar loves looking across 149,000,000km of space to record the

activity on the volatile surface of the sun.

VISITING THE sun is

impossible, but for a New

Brighton amateur astronomer

his forays into the boiling

5500 deg C cauldron of

the corona layer of the

sun’s atmosphere are done

photographically.

When asked why, Sai

Shankar, a teacher assistant at

Allanvale School in Bryndwr,

said he loves all kinds of

astro-photography: “But I

especially like photographing

the sun.”

“We forget the sun is a star,

just like all the other stars in

the sky, so when you look at

the surface of the sun you are

looking at a star.”

Petition

launched to

further

improve

intersection

safety

• By Fiona Ellis

SAFETY REMAINS a concern at

a busy Burnside intersection, with

more than 150 people signing a

petition for a green arrow to be

installed, in spite of changes made

by the city council.

The change.org petition

was launched by commuter

Natalie Ekman, who said she

typically used the Wairakei and

Grahams Rd intersection four

times a day.

Oncoming traffic and poor

visibility made a right turn risky

in all directions, she said.

“You basically have to start

pulling out on the orange to

turn,” she said.

“At least once a week we have a

near miss even though I’m very

cautious.

“It’s just a very dangerous

intersection . . . it’s not a perfect T

shape, it’s more of an X.”

Her petition stated that a green

right-turning arrow should be

installed so that cars can turn

safely without running the danger

of being hit by cars coming from

other directions.

A proposal to improve

pedestrian safety at the

intersection was approved by the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board at a meeting

in June last year.

Need an electric drill? Borrow it

• By Fiona Ellis

AIMING TO fix a community

problem, Steve Jones-Poole has

not just one tool at his disposal,

but over 200.

He is the co-ordinator of the

recently opened Shirley Tool

Shed, which lends tools to the

community for a total yearly

membership cost of just $20.

It was a high social-housing

area, and people may not have

access to affordable equipment

they needed for DIY and repair

projects, he said.

“People just don’t have access

to tools that they need to

maintain their properties,”

Jones-Poole said.

The shed stocked a wide range

of over 200 tools.

“Someone could walk in there

with nothing and walk out with

everything they need to build a

deck.”

House-cleaning equipment

such as mops and brooms were

also available to borrow, as was

gardening equipment, from

rakes to weed-eaters.

Since a jigsaw sliced through

a wooden ribbon to officially

open the shed two weeks ago,

membership had been quietly

building, and about a dozen

people had signed up.

“Our first hire was somebody

who had a property inspection

coming up. They hired the

vacuum cleaner so they could

clean the house, and they’ve

since been back and got gardening

tools and mowers and that

sort of thing.”

“It’s doing exactly what we

hoped.”

Located at 33 Briggs Rd, the

tool shed was open on Wednesdays

from 4-6pm.

It was also a good

community connection

point that would reach a new

demographic, he said.

“Some people won’t go and sit

down at the community cafe,

but they’ll come along . . . and

talk tools.”

He was “very pleased” that

the tool shed was now up and

running.

A Shirley Village Project community

activator, the shed had

been a goal of his for a few years,

but time had been needed to

them in the community and

change and help and support

Capturing Sol in all its glory

THE

• From page 1

“It amazes me that we are

living in a time when we can

do something that’s been out

of reach of most amateurs

photographers up until now.

“With the help of an ordinary

refractive telescope and some

affordable specialist equipment

we can now see the sun up

close, it’s quite an experience to

look at it with your own eyes,”

he said.

Shankar said it’s all achieved

by using specialist filters and

some free online software.

“We start off with a white light

filter which lets all the colours

of the visible spectrum through,

but reduces them down to a tiny

percentage, less than one per

cent of what we see.

“This filter shows us the

photosphere of the sun, the layer

of the sun with all the sun spots

happening on it.”

Next he uses is a hydrogen

alpha optical filter designed

to transmit only a narrow

bandwidth of light.

“This filter only lets in a

wavelength of light that is

less than one nanometre

in size; a human hair is

600,000 nanometres in

thickness.

“It gives me amazing views

of a different layer of the sun’s

atmosphere, now I can now see

the chromosphere,” he said.

SOLAR FLARE: A big prominence exploding on the north

east limb of the sun, estimated as high as five or six

earths. Below – a small eruption is bigger than three

earths.

PHOTOS: SAI SHANKAR

This layer has the temperature

ranging from 6000 deg C to

about 20,000 deg C.

“You can still see sun spots

but you can now see

prominences exploding on the

edge of the sun plus a lot of

surface detail.

“It looks amazing and it’s

dynamic, over an hour it can

change immensely,” Shankar

said.

Using a monochromatic

video camera that captures at

100 frames per second, he then

records 30 seconds of imagery at

a time.

“The atmosphere of the sun

is quite turbulent so it’s called

‘lucky photography,’ as over that

30 seconds there will be brief

moments of clarity in the surface

turbulence.

“On screen, your watching

blurry images then suddenly it

jumps into clear sharp focus,“ he

said.

Free photographic stacking

software quickly sorts the

best one-to-five per cent of all

the images captured to produce

a clear, sharp result as a mosaic.

“It finds the best frames and

matches them together into a

black and white image which I

can then colourise to show the

sun.”

From there Shankar said he

will manipulate with them in

Photoshop and produce the

images he is becoming well

known for.

Shanker said he plans to

display his unique imagery

online in the coming weeks.

FACTS:

•The sun is Yellow Dwarf

star composed primarily of

hydrogen and helium.

•It is over 4.6 billion years old

and compared to the largest

known stars, red giants, isn’t

very big, but compared to

the most common type of

star in the universe, the red

dwarf, the sun is quite a bit

larger than most.

•The sun alone contains 99.8

per cent of the total mass in

our solar system.

•It’s almost 110 times the

diameter of earth.

•About one million earth’s

could fit inside the sun while

the surface area of the sun is

11,990 times that of earth.

•The sun is spinning in

the opposite direction to

earth and is travelling at

220km per second, light

takes eight minutes to reach

earth.

•The atmosphere of the

sun is composed of three

layers – the photosphere,

the chromosphere, and the

corona – and its surface

temperature is 5500 deg C

•The nuclear explosions on

the surface generate solar

winds, which are ejections

of extremely hot, charged

particles of plasma and can

travel through the solar

system at up to 450km per

second.

•Our orbital speed

around the sun is about

(107,000km/h.

Right turn too risky as is, say commuters

DANGEROUS: A car turns right from Grahams Rd into

Wairakei Rd on a red light (left). Meanwhile, the faded

road markings on Grahams Rd, near the intersection with

Wairakei Rd, have been criticised as confusing.

PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

• From page 1

The board also requested

council staff review the

intersection in six months’ time

to determine if right turn arrows

were needed.

“We got quite hopeful when we

saw an arrow light being put in

and cabling being done, but it’s

actually a red arrow they’ve

put in.

“The red arrow stops you from

turning right if there’s a pedestrian

who’s crossing, but that’s

all.”

This was a wasted opportunity,

Elkman said.

Other changes made at the

intersection last year included

marking one lane especially for

right-turning traffic, but the

paint was now coming off, and

those who were unfamiliar with

the intersection could struggle to

identify markings, she said.

While the changes initially

made her feel safer as a driver,

this was no longer the case as

people reverted to bad habits

after they became familiar with

the changes.

Launched on Saturday night,

the number of people signing

the petition showed there was

“definite interest” in the issue.

Waimairi Ward councillor and

community board member Sam

MacDonald said the city council

had not yet reported back to the

community board on whether a

green arrow was needed.

Other works were taking place

in the area, and it made sense

for the need for a green arrow to

be assessed after these changes

were made as they could impact

traffic, he said.

“It hasn’t worked out as

planned,” MacDonald said of

the original six-month review

timeframe.

The city council did not

respond to request for comment

by Nor’West News before the

publication went to print.

Selwyn House School took a trip down the yellow brick road last

week with a performance of the Wizard of Oz.

The show was the result of two terms of rehearsals, countless

volunteer hours in set-building and costume creation.

Director Greg Pearce said the students could not wait to put all of

their hard work into action on the stage.

“The resilience and adaptability that these students have shown,

as we have faced the uncertainty of whether we could go ahead and

then made venue, date and audience changes to allow it to happen,

has been remarkable,” Pearce said.

“We are so grateful that we have managed to make this work

within the alert level 2 guidelines.”

Student indie pop duo launch first song

• By Fiona Ellis

FOR TWO young musicians,

what started out as messing

around has resulted in a bid

to spice up the country’s indie

music scene.

As indie-pop duo Love Me

Lazy, 16-year-old Georgie

Gaiger and 17-year-old Claudia

Moore, will launch their first

song on Spotify this week.

The Rangi Ruru Girls’

School students bonded over

their shared love of music. Both

sing and play bass, and Georgie

also plays guitar.

“We wrote a few songs just

messing around and then we

wrote Pink Paint and really

thought it had some potential so

we started taking it seriously,”

Georgie said.

“We love the New Zealand

indie sound and wanted to add

our own spice to it.

“Pink paint is a story of

realising you’re being lied to in a

relationship and all the emotion

and feelings that come with it.”

The title of the song came from

the lyrics “inside I watch my

pink paint dry,” a favourite line

for both girls.

Finding the patience to

properly prepare the song’s

release was the hardest part of

the creation process, Georgie

said.

“We were so keen to put the

song out, we wanted to release

it soon as possible but the

PINK PAINT: With the launch of their song on Spotify, 17-year-old Claudia Moore (left) and 16-year-old Georgie Gaiger are

challenge was being patient and

making sure it was top quality.

“It was all worth it in the end

and we are very proud of what

we have put together.”

The pair were also planning to

release an EP next year.

“Pink paint will 100 per cent

be in it and we are planning to

release the EP to all streaming

platforms including Spotify and

Apple music,” Georgie said.

After finishing high school,

they hoped to tour the country

and make a name for themselves

playing at festivals.

Ngaio Marsh resident Gavin

with his wife Margaret.

GAVIN ENJOYS THE THOUGHTFUL CARE

PROVIDED BY THE NGAIO MARSH TEAM

Gavin is looking forward to his 90th birthday

and there are plenty of reasons for him

to celebrate.

Both Gavin and his wife Margaret

recently faced a period of uncertainty,

when Gavin had a stroke. Later on,

he battled with a bout of pneumonia.

So, he now values being able to

exercise regularly, keeping in touch

with family members plus of course the

wonderful care he receives at Ngaio Marsh

Retirement Village. Gavin first

moved into the resthome at

Ngaio Marsh in September 2020.

He likes to remain active. However, due

to some of the more recent COVID-19

restrictions, some of his gym-based workouts

on an exercycle have been put on hold but

walking is still an option. “Whenever I get

offered a chance to go for a walk, I take it,”

he says.

Gavin originally comes from the North

Otago farming community but when they

sold their property in the late 1980s he and

Margaret relocated. They lived in Oamaru

for a number of years before settling in

Christchurch in 2002. Christchurch was

a natural choice given that Margaret had

been brought up in the city and did her

nurse training there.

Margaret lives in the couple’s

Burnside home, and travels to the

village to be with Gavin. She often

brings Gavin a salad that he can add to

his lunch fare.

Gavin’s family includes son David, who lives

in Christchurch, and daughter Annie, who

lives in England.

Ngaio Marsh Unit Coordinator Chessie Yap

says COVID-19 travel restrictions meant

that communications with Annie were

somewhat hindered. So, she set up chats

on Zoom between Gavin and Margaret and

their London-based daughter.

“I used to do it sometimes on the cellphone,

but it was such a tiny little picture, so the

Zoom meetings have been much better,”

Margaret says.

“She (Chessie) has been marvellous,”

Gavin adds.

Gavin and Margaret also like to involve

themselves in village life. Their son

David often brings in his little dog

Betsy, who has become a firm favourite

with fellow village residents. “She’s

very good, she has to stay on her

lead,” Margaret says.

They’ve also found out they already know

a couple of the other village residents and

have enjoyed the relationship they have

formed with the village staff.

The initial reaction by Gavin and Margaret

to Ngaio Marsh was so positive,

Chessie recalls.

“I remember when Gavin came here first, he

really admired the size of the village atrium.

“He’s really enjoying it here!”

The Ngaio Marsh team are well

respected within the Christchurch

community for the dedicated healthcare

and nursing offerings they give to Gavin

and others. The staff members are

enthusiastic when it comes to making

sure the level of care and attention to

detail is of the highest order.

CARE WHEN YOU NEED IT

Ngaio Marsh Village has got you covered with a range of

living and care options. We’re dedicated to caring for you

now and into your future; from the extra support of a

serviced apartment to resthome and hospital care.

Retirement village wins people’s choice award

THE DIANA Isaac Retirement

Village team are the ecstatic

winners of an Aged Advisor

people’s choice award.

The Mairehau village took out

the best large retirement/lifestyle

village category for the South

Island.

The awards are based on hundreds

of reviews and ratings for

retirement facilities throughout

the country.

Aged Advisor NZ, which runs

the awards, provides consumer

information and news about the

aged care industry and village

living offerings.

This year other Ryman

Healthcare villages in

Christchurch also made the

people’s choice finals.

Margaret Stoddart was

a finalist in the best small

retirement/lifestyle village

award, and Anthony Wilding

was another finalist in the same

category as Diana Isaac.

Diana Isaac village manager

Tracey McCullough said

everyone within the village had

played a role in the win.

Diana Isaac was a close runner-up

in the 2020 awards and

had previously taken top spot in

2018 and 2015.

“You give a star rating when

you give feedback,” McCullough

said.

“The feedback is coming from

independent serviced apartment

and care residents, plus their

friends and family.

TOP RATING: Diana Isaac village manager Tracey McCullough holds the people’s choice award aloft. ​

“Everybody judges things

differently, whether it’s

independents looking at their

gardens and the maintenance

that’s been carried out, or

whether they come in and have

fine dining or events.”

On the other hand, those

in the care centre facilities

would often rate a village on

things such as care, laundry,

housekeeping, so everyone plays

their part, she said.

During her time as village

manager, McCullough said the

village had expanded its services.

There are now offerings such as

an e-cab, a dedicated café, and a

village host who works at the bar

and with the help of the kitchen

team provides snacks plus drinks

during evenings from Thursdays

to Sundays.

During the recent Covid-19

lockdown Diana Isaac, like other

Ryman villages, continued to

update the entertainment and

hospitality space, providing

‘happy hour in a bag’ supplies

to residents as well as Zoombased

entertainment and remote

exercise sessions.

Gym classes for over-60s proving popular

A SPORTING organisation in

Ōtautahi has engaged the local

community with a fun, engaging

and interactive new offering

designed specifically for over-60s.

Passionate about the fundamental

movement skills the

sport of gymnastics incorporates,

Olympia Gymnastics, created a

gymnastics class for older adults.

The class began at the end

of July and runs at 10.45am on

Wednesday mornings in Wigram.

It has so far seen a reasonable

amount of interest from the local

community with the highest

number of participants at eight

before the latest lockdown. Since

then, the class has returned at

level 2 and is once again beginning

to build momentum.

Olympia recreation manager,

Melissa Wakeham was the driving

force behind the start-up of

this class.

“A change in strategy was the instigator

for this class, we wanted to

look at focusing more on community-based

programmes and how

we could support different areas

of the community. Our goal was

to have a programme for everyone

to access and one gap that was

missing was an older adult’s programme,”

Wakeham said.

Sport Canterbury’s community

strength and balance project lead,

Rebecca Logan worked alongside

Wakeham to not only ensure this

class meets the needs of older

adults but to help promote the

class to the community.

“When we began working with

Rebecca Logan, it was highlighted

that falls prevention is something

that is needed. There are so many

aspects of the fundamental movement

patterns within gymnastics

that could benefit balance and

stability for the older population.

“It was a fun challenge to think

about how we could put this

together – something a little bit

different, something new but

something that could serve the

community really well. Rebecca

gave us more information about

the Live Stronger for Longer

project and what to include in

the programme. This helped us

connect the dots and realise this

would actually be really good for

the community,” she said.

The regular participants are enjoying

the challenge and the opportunity

to build their strength

in this specific type of class not

offered elsewhere in Ōtautahi.

“I come along to these classes

to work on my balance – I’ve

noticed that as I’ve got older, my

balance has gone downhill. A few

years ago, I had a fall and broke

my arm and have osteoporosis,

I don’t want to have a fall again,”

participant Anne said.

Olympia instructor, Becky

Morrison has also enjoyed working

with a different age-group

than who she usually coaches and

instructs.

“I like working with a different

age group, we’ve only offered

young people and children’s

classes previously, but to work

with an older adult population I

really enjoy seeing the progress

each week through the balance

exercises and the social confidence

they gain.

“I think it’s important for older

adults to keep their power up and

their balance up because as they

get older it can start to deteriorate

a little bit, so classes like these can

keep the balance and prevent falls

from happening, or injuries from

a fall at home,” Morrison said.

Morrison’s time running this

class is coming to an end as she

takes on a full-time roll at the

Accident Compensation Corporation,

however, Olympia competitive

women’s artistic gymnastics

coach, Patrick Smith will be taking

over from her to lead this class.

Live Stronger for Longer is

a nationwide project launched

in 2017. One of the goals of the

project is to create and grow

access to accredited strength

and balance classes across New

Zealand.

Currently there are over 200

accredited classes within the

Canterbury District Health Board

region, including the class at

Olympia Gymnastics.

Accredited classes work to

improve an individual’s strength

and balance, supporting

our kaumātua to stay living

independently and injury free in

their own homes.

Have you ever just stopped in your

tracks, so astonished at something

you couldn’t understand it, let alone

explain what was really happening? In

the current market, I find myself in that

realm weekly and while it’s exhilarating

on one hand, it’s deeply unusual on the

other - and it defies belief.

The property market, this market, the

prices, the scale, the desperation, tears

and joy.

Every human emotion is being played

out. I’ve seen it all and not just in our

own auction rooms but everywhere that

property is being transacted.

To provide context and analysis, we

review as a business - and a sales team -

every auction (because that is where the

magic is occurring) that we conduct over

And the findings so far include standouts,

this week and every week over the past

four months.

There’s the property in Burnside with three

bidders that, after the announcement

it was to be sold at $780,000, achieved

$808,000 with additional bidding, or a

2-bedroom unit on Wilsons Road that had

its auction brought forward at $435,000

and once it was announced as being 'on

the market and selling' reached $700,000

due to the pressure of five bidders.

Then there was a Clyde Road property

which was announced on the market on

auction day for $1,120,000 and then sold

at $1,425,000. To be fair, I could recount

example after example of similarly

exceptional results, as well as glowing

testimonials from people who have felt

their lives are now altered.

So could this all change and what would

preempt that?

Increased interest rates are already

occurring, more listings are coming to

the market as owners hope that they

too will enjoy the “Lotto win” sales

figures experienced by others, and the

government is legislating to allow for

higher density infill housing throughout

the city. So, yes to changes, but whether

these alter the current picture remains

uncertain. As the top real estate expert

(C.B) says "There might be a small clip".

Let's see shall we? In the meantime, I’m

doing the best I can to hold tight and

add value for owners and support for our

purchasers.

It's busy out there!
