2020’s 1st Meteor Shower in the UAE
Closed

Good news for stargazers! this Friday, 2020 will have its very first meteor shower in none other than the lovely UAE!

The Quadrantid meteor shower is expected to peak late night on 3/JAN/2020 (Friday) until dawn of 4/JAN/2020 (Saturday).

The Dubai Astronomy Group will be hosting the sighting event at Al Qudra lake from 10 PM to 3 AM. And it's best to see it before dawn, starting at 2 after midnight on the northeastern side as Ebeahim Al Jarwan, member of the Arab Union for Space and Astronomy, says.

Unlike peaks of the Perseids or Geminid meteor showers that can persist for a day or even more, the Quadranitd peak will only last for a few hours. Fortunately, we'll be seeing up to 120 meteor showers per hour in a fairly dark sky, which is a good show.

These meteors will radiate from constellation Boötes, a constellation that lies in the northern hemisphere, and is one of the largest constellations in the sky.

It's going to be a good treat for me, I'm in!
