Bandar Seri Begawan – The Astronomical Society of Brunei Darussalam (PABD) is still investigating after sightings of a mysterious fireball accompanied with a loud bang was reported falling to earth in broad daylight last week, January 31, 2021.
On Sunday (February 7, 2021), a team of members of the PABD conducted further examination at the locations based on firsthand sighting video and photograph of the meteor event.
PABD is also working closely with the Sabah Stargazers with the support by a group of 4×4 off-road enthusiasts known as Jimmy Sierra Brunei Community by exchanging information on the coordinates in the sky of the reported meteor.
Currently, there are two key sources of evidence based on two dashcam-footage that accidentally caught the meteor at the same time – from Kampong Kulapis, Brunei Darussalam and Penampang, Sabah. These useful information were solid proof to determine the approximate physical characteristics of the meteor and its location, which were later triangulated by statistics from another eyewitness.

BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, Isnin, 1 Februari. – Bunyi dentuman yang disangka guruh diiringi dengan gegaran yang terjadi kira-kira sekitar jam 11.00 pagi kelmarin sedikit sebanyak menimbulkan kepanikan dan menjadi persoalan kepada sebahagian penduduk di negara ini yang mengalami kejadian tersebut.
Jika terjadinya guruh dan kilat tetapi cuaca kelmarin begitu elok sahaja, sehingga ada beberapa persepsi yang mengaitkannya dengan beberapa insiden dari luar negara yang memberi impak kepada negara kita.
Menurut kenyataan yang dikeluarkan oleh Persatuan Astronomi Negara Brunei Darussalam (PABD) menerusi laman sesawangnya di ‘www.bruneiastronomy.org’, satu meteor besar (fireball) mencetuskan letupan yang disaksikan pada siang hari kelmarin, 31 Januari 2021.
Sehubungan itu, PABD menerima banyak laporan daripada orang ramai yang mendengar letupan kuat di awan dan mengumpulkan laporan saksi yang menyaksikan kejadian tersebut.

IAU.org – Are you an astrophotographer with an enthusiasm for astronomy education? If so, a new contest run by one of the IAU Offices is for you. The IAU’s Office of Astronomy for Education (OAE) is running an astrophotography contest until 15 April 2021. The winning photographers will receive cash prizes, and their images will be made available as Open Educational Resources for teachers and learners worldwide.
Astronomy education is a powerful tool to teach students about our place in the Universe, and it is also an exciting gateway science to the STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). One of the OAE’s goals is to provide astronomy educators around the world with a foundational collection of high-quality educational resources. While many excellent images are already available for public use, the OAE has identified a number of astronomy-related themes with which educators could use further support.
Due to the recent outbreak of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19), the Astronomical Society of Brunei Darussalam (PABD) has postponed most of our public engagement activities such as stargazing, new moon observation etc. until further notice and focus on implementing Astronomy at Home or in a small group activity. This is in view of prevention and to control the spread of the infection in Brunei Darussalam.
