Rimu check this out - video of NZ from space! Made Jan 24, 2015.

Too often New Zealand is left off maps but this time it is centre of attention in a beautiful fly by video from space courtesy of the International Space Station.
The video on YouTube channel AstronautiCAST covers from Stewart Island to the lower North Island before cloud cover obscures the upper North.
Epic views of the South Island shows dense colours with rivers and mountain ranges clearly visible, all with a backdrop of a lingering sunset.
The footage was taken by the Italian Association for Astronautics and Space.
What do you think?

How To Write a Quality Blog Comment!

Today we learnt how to write a quality blog comment. There are five things we need to remember when writing a good comment. 

1) Compliment the writer in a specific way. (Be positive.) 

2) Be factual. 

3) Make a connection. 

4) End with a question. 

 5) Proofread your comment. 

In pairs we went on someone's Manual post they wrote last Friday and we commented on it. We did a fantastic job and we are looking forward to conversations on our posts! 

 Thanks Rimu for a great job today!
