It’s happening TOMORROW NIGHT!

Anyone who enjoys observing the night sky and hoping to spot a shooting star can make their wish come true in the very beginning of 2020.

The Dubai Astronomy Group host a meteor-sighting event at Al Qudra Lake this Saturday, 4 January, from 10pm-3am.

“Up to 120 meteors per hour are expected to enter the Earth’s atmosphere. The first quarter moon will set shortly after midnight, leaving fairly dark skies for what could be a good show. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Bootes but can appear anywhere in the sky,” according to a statement by the Dubai Astronomy Group.
