A huge meteor shower that occurs annually is expected to be seen in the UAE. With 50 to 100 meteors seen every hour, the Perseid meteor shower is one of the brightest meteor showers.

The anticipated show will light up UAE skies from late night on August 12 until the early hours of the morning on August 13.

Dubai Astronomy Group will host a special event to mark the occasion on August 12 into August 13.

“The humidity and heat during this time can make outdoor events challenging so this year we will be hosting an observation event on Jebel Jais mountain," Mr Al Hariri said.

“We encourage residents to book a space via our website as we have limited availability.”

“This is one of the brightest meteor showers and it will not disappoint,” Mr Al Hariri said. “It will be most visible after midnight and the showers should continue until about 4am.”
