A meteor shower will be visible tonight!

The skies better be clear tonight, because Dubai is going to be in the centre of a Leonid Meteor Shower, and tonight is the best time to see the natural phenomenon.

Between midnight tonight and sunrise, you will be able to see 10 to 15 meteors an hour, looking a lot like shooting stars. If you’re an avid star gazer you can get a better view with a telescope, but it will be visible to the naked eye too!

People in the middle of the city are less likely to see the meteor shower though, as the inner city lights will block out the night sky – So if you’ve got a 4X4, get out to the middle of the desert!

The weather is going to be calm and clear tonight, so grab a blanket, lie down, and look up!
