Watch The Perseid Meteor Shower In Dubai From Tonight

The Perseid Meteor Shower will be visible from tonight until tomorrow (12 - 13 August) During its peak, there are 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!
