Pip joins top team in US programme Energised: Pip Bolton will represent New Zealand in the United States. Engineering technician and architectural designer Pip Bolton of Fraser Thomas in Paihia has been selected to rep- resent New Zealand as part of an elite Rotary GSE Program in the United States early next year. Pip is one of six rep- resentatives to earn a place on the team after an intense selection pro- cess which included giv- ing a presentation on sustainable architecture, impromptu speeches and team building exercises. The exchange runs for a month and will be held in Iowa. It will focus on latest innovations in alternative energy such as advancements in bio fuels, solar and wind energy technologies. Pip has 10 years industry experience and is interested in learning more about energy utilis- ation -- how people and buildings consume energy -- and developing policies to support the implementation of sustainable building. As part of her study she intends to visit a number of schools that have been fitted with alternative energy systems to gather data on the financial benefits and will share this infor- mation with New Zea- land schools on her return. A total eclipse of the moon Fiery moon: The fully eclipsed moon will appear orange-red. Photo: STARDOME New Zealanders will get a rare opportunity to observe a total lunar eclipse early morn- ing of December 11. The eclipse will begin just after 12.30am and be visible where the skies are clear. The period of total eclipse lasts for less than an hour, from just after 3am to just before 4am. Observatories around the country will be hosting special events to allow the public to observe this phenomenon through powerful telescopes. In Auckland at Stardome Observatory and Planet- arium, the public is invited to watch the event between mid- night and 6am for a gold coin donation. In a lunar eclipse the moon is obscured as it passes through the earth's shadow. Visit www.stardome.org.nz for more information.
