Due to the current outbreak of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19), the Astronomical Society of Brunei Darussalam (PABD) has postponed most of our public engagement such as stargazing, new moon observation etc. until further notice. We focus on implementing our Astronomy Outreach activities in a small group or limited number of participants. This is in view of prevention and to control the spread of the infection in Brunei Darussalam.
