Dubai’s skies will light up with another astronomical event. The Perseid Meteor Shower will be visible from August 12-13. During its peak, there is likely to be between 50-100 meteors per hour, making the annual August Perseid Meteor Shower a highlight in the Northern Hemisphere.
And it really is a sight to see
If this time-lapse of the 2016 Perseid Meteor Shower in California is anything to go by, we want front-row seats!
Where to watch
To avoid any light pollution and get the best view possible, head out of the city. The Dubai Astronomy Group is hosting a Perseid Meteor Shower party in the Al Qudra desert - which is an ideal spot! There will also be a Q&A if you want to learn more about the phenomenon. Grab a picnic and head away from the city lights for the best seat in the house!
