Bandar Seri Begawan – There will be a close pairing of the moon and the planet Venus, a perfect chance to all stargazers to enjoy witnessing an astronomical event with family and friends this Hari Raya.
Gaze the western horizon on these days August 9 and 10, 2013, just after sunset, at around 6:35 pm and you will be greeted with a beautiful sight: the crescent moon beside a very bright star-like object, the planet Venus. The event will be visible to the naked eye and does not require any special equipment. Clear sky and Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
The April 26, 2013 partial lunar eclipse will be visible over Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia. Only a tiny sliver of the moon will be covered by the Earth’s umbral shadow at maximum eclipse. Eclipse will be visible from 2.03 am till 6.11 am in Brunei.
Partial Eclipse of the Moon
The entire eclipse is visible from Brunei Darussalam.
The moon, mighty Jupiter and bright stars cluster of Pleiades appear in celestial conjunction on the night of Dec 25, 2012. Stargazers will be able to see the moon is closed to the planet and stars cluster through the night sky. A great opportunity to all astrophotographers in Brunei to capture the spectacular event.

A total lunar eclipse is set to occur tomorrow on August 28 and will be visible in Brunei between 6.25pm and 8.24pm.
Unlike the previous partial lunar eclipse on 8 Sept last year, this eclipse would be a total. It will be a very spectacular cosmic event as the entire moon will pass the earth`s shadow.
In Brunei, the two-hour lunar eclipse can be observed right after the moon rises at 6:25 pm local time.
Eclipse watchers should be able to see the moon rising low in the eastern horizon and to appear reddish-brown because the earth blocks most of the sunlight to the moon.

The survey department of Brunei Darussalam and the Astronomical Society of Brunei will also set up telescopes at the Serasa Water Sports Complex tomorrow (28 August 2007) for the public to view the eclipse from 6.00 pm till 9.00 pm.
The next eclipse visible in Brunei will be a partial lunar eclipse on 17 August next year.
