Hazy skies caused by the tragic Australian bush fires are set to linger this weekend.
Northwesterly winds have blown a hazy plume of smoke across the Tasman Sea, and while it has mostly affected the South Island in recent weeks, it has moved up the country.
The "robust plume" is expected to head to the South Island late on Saturday.
The haze has been causing a yellowish-orange, hue at sunset, making for some sweet sunset photos. Share your photos in the comments!

Hi Neighbours, The V8 supercars race costs Auckland ratepayers $1.2m and is the city's most-publicly-sponsored major event. So how did it suddenly end up shifting from its Pukekohe home to Waikato's Hampton Downs? Read the story below:
A group of ‘mature musicians’ are seeking a venue, three to four times per year.
The ‘Capo Club’ [pronounced Car–po] is based upon the concept of:
“Live from Daryl's House” and here are some video examples:
The club is a mix of:
Teachers - Nurses - Accountants - Tele communications - I. T. - Media - Private business owners.
There are currently 12 musicians, who are not seeking any payment- just a location to enjoy music. Occasional guest performers could also be present. Some musicians would need to travel or fly into Auckland to attend.
The idea is for this to be family friendly so, your friends and relatives could be present to watch and listen to live music.
Do you have a venue similar to the example shown, or a large space - barn - hall - cosy home room - factory - available, preferably on the North Shore?
Soft furnishings are preferred rather than hard concrete surfaces due to the audio reverberation. Any lighting or P A systems will be provided by the club.
