Dubai Astronomy Group Persides Meteor Shower Night Party 13/14AUG2015
Astronomy lovers are in for a treat this summer as the, all-time favourite, Perseid Meteor Shower peaks coinciding with the new moon on August 13. The Perseid meteor shower is perhaps the most spectacular one for the Northern Hemisphere and gradually builds to a peak from 50 to 100 meteors per hour in a dark sky.
No special equipment is required to enjoy this spectacle of nature. To make things easier, you don’t even have to be an astronomy expert. We however do recommend that you bring along some mats or chairs to be comfortably seated while gazing into the night sky. And as icing on the cake, astronomers from Dubai Astronomy Group will be available to assist you to observe celestial bodies, such as the planet Saturn and the stars of the Summer Triangle, through their telescopes.
In our day and age of expanded artificial lighting, fewer and fewer people have actually seen the wonders of an inky black night sky. So make a date with the Perseid meteor shower and witness one of nature’s most remarkable sky shows!
