Astronomi dan Masyarakat di Negara Brunei Darussalam

*Presenting author’s email: hazarry@bruneiastronomy.org

Astronomi merupakan suatu bidang yang multidisiplin iaitu gabungan sains, matematik, agama dan pelbagai lagi. Bagaimanapun di Negara Brunei Darussalam pendedahan bidang tersebut terhadap orang ramai masih lagi kurang. Justeru itu, Persatuan Astronomi Negara Brunei Darussalam (PABD) memainkan peranan sebagai agensi bebas dan persatuan bukan Kerajaan untuk memajukan bidang ini terutamanya astronomi Islam (falak syarie) melalui pelbagai inisiatif dan mempelbagai program bagi menarik minat masyarakat. Sejak penubuhan PABD pada tahun 2003, beberapa faktor yang menyumbang serta cabaran pada perkembangan bidang astronomi dalam kalangan masyarakat di Negara Brunei Darussalam telah dikenalpasti.
