MBK Team is a group of active meteor observers with special interests in comets, eclipses, aurora and the Sun. The Team consists of more than 10 members who are also members of Astronomical Society Orion from Maribor, Slovenia.

MBK Team was formed in July 1999 by Javor Kac, Jure Atanackov and Jure Zakrajsek, observers with experience going back to 1993-1995. We monitor major meteor showers as well as minor showers and sporadic activity, organize observing campaigns and expeditions for major events such as meteor outbursts, bright comets and eclipses and monitor solar activity and possible mid-latitude auroral outbreaks.

MBK Team cooperates with the following organizations and individuals:

  • American Meteor Society
  • International Meteor Organization
  • International Comet Quarterly
  • North American Meteor Network
  • Jeremie Vaubaillon, Institut de mecanique celeste et de calcul des ephemerides
  • European Space Agency - ESA/RSSD Meteor Research Group
  • Charles S. Morris, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, NASA
  • Rezman Observatory
  • Herman Mikuz, Crni Vrh Observatory and Department of Physics, University of Ljubljana
  • Jiri Borovicka and Pavel Spurny, Astronomical Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic
  • Richard A. Keen, Program in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (PAOS), University of Colorado
  • Werfried Kuneth, Austria
  • Dark Sky Slovenia - 7th European Symposium for the Protection of the Night Sky - Light Pollution and Global Warming (5-6 October 2007, Bled, Slovenia)
