Where to watch meteor shower in UAE next week

Perseids 2018 Annual Perseid meteor shower Perseids 2018 The bright fireballs might erupt at a rate of 50 to 60 an hour

Saturday and Sunday night, August 11th and 12th, mark the peak of the meteor shower that is already going on.

The meteor shower's peak will be visible both the nights of Aug. 11-12 and Aug. 12-13, Cooke said, but he's inclined this year to lean toward the night of Aug. 12-13 for the better show. But you don't need to stare at Perseus to spot meteors - in fact, it may be better to simply stare unfocused into the sky and let your more-sensitive peripheral vision do the heavy lifting.

For the best views, Cooke recommends finding a dark place, away from any sources of light, and simply lying on your back and looking straight up.

Twarog describes the Perseid meteor shower as "spectacular", however he doesn't get too excited about the event.

On the other hand, if Perseid meteors were only visible for a few days or hours each year, this would suggest Comet Swift-Tuttle is a young visitor to the inner solar system because its debris has yet to spread much outside the comet's original path. The ice and dust, accumulating over a thousand years, burn up in our atmosphere to create the meteor shower.

US Senator Rand Paul delivers letter from Trump to Putin
The White House said Trump had provided Paul with a "letter of introduction" for his trip at the senator's request. A meeting between Paul and Putin has not happened and isn't expected to happen at the moment.


This Perseid meteor shower will take place during a almost new moon-meaning it won't interfere with the show-and is expected to be the best meteor shower this year. That means staying away from urban areas if possible, as light pollution can dominate in cities.

Downloading a star-gazing mobile app can also add to the experience of meteor showers. The shower begins to peak on Friday, and the busiest stretch and the best viewing, according to NASA, will be from midnight Sunday through the predawn hours of Monday. However, it's important to set an alarm clock, because the meteor shower occurs while most people are sleeping. Some of the best local dark skies are found in the Horse Heaven Hills and foothills of the Blue Mountains.

Not only will the night sky be dark, but also clear, according to Matt Walters, a meteorologist with Topeka's National Weather Service.

Swift-Tuttle measures a massive 16 miles, and last passed by Earth in 1992.

This is the largest object known to repeatedly pass by our planet. This will greatly increase the number of meteors seen. "You really have to get out in the country", he said.
