Verse of The Day
“U tonu hoki toku whakaaro, e kore te mate, te ora ranei, e kore nga anahera, nga rangatiratanga ranei, e kore nga mea onaianei, e kore nga mea e puta mai a mua, e kore nga mana, E kore te tiketike, e kore te hohonu, e kore tetahi atu mea hanga, e kaha ki te momotu i a tatou i te aroha o te Atua, i tera i roto nei i a Karaiti Ihu, i to tatou Ariki.” (Romans 8:38-39)

The lights disappeared in the south, but two more appeared minutes later and he called his wife Alison out to watch as the "amazing" lights again passed overhead. Mr Egginton put the lights down to a meteorite shower. Alison found them so perturbing she phoned Civil Defence in Whangarei to let the authorities know.
