There are conflicting reports as to whether a ship tied up at Queens Wharf is part of the Chinese navy.

The New Zealand Defence Force and Ports of Auckland confirmed yesterday that the Yuan Wang 6 arrived on Sunday and was a space-tracking vessel controlled by the Chinese navy.

This detail was later denied by its shipping agency Cosco and omitted in statements by both the Chinese Consulate General and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

    Interesting technology on this ship Clare…

    • Jon Farquharson wrote on Facebook in regard to this:
      “Similar u.s. ships are alleged to have capability to influence and steer weather patterns like hurricanes, and may function as mobile haarp. Any large unusual weather stuff happening around here or Australia?

      Is there a weather warning for northland Auckland of damage from hail stones, multiple tornado touch downs?
      2 days ago they had over 1000 lightning strikes in 4 hours in northland.

      …I am not implying it’s related, but was interesting to see so much weird weather happen in Auckland after putting the question out there. Another one for an extremely low pressure zone sitting over Auckland which might cause parts of the north western motorway to flood!
