Two of the gaseous giants, Saturn and Jupiter, continue to pass each other in the evening sky this week. The angular separation of the planets will steadily increase in the next few days, and both of the planets will hang just above the western horizon in the twilight sky.
Today the sky was pretty clear to catch the post great conjunction moment from Brunei Darussalam Live stream video of the cosmic event can be found www.bruneiastronomy.org/youtube
Bandar Seri Begawan – The bright planets – Jupiter, Saturn and Mars – together with the Waning Moon were all visible today on April 16, 2020 from Mini Astronomical Observatory in Tutong, Brunei Darussalam at predawn hours.
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.
