Stargazing Party

Join Dubai Astronomy Group for a family friendly night under the stars at Al Qudra Desert Dubai on 12th August 2019. Observe the majestic planets of the Solar System, Jupiter and Saturn and the beauty of almost close-to-full Moon through the telescope. And as the Earth passes through the long trail left by Comet Swift-Tuttle, spectators can expect to see few fireballs of the most popular meteor shower of the year ‘The Perseid Meteor Shower’.

PLEASE NOTE:
Due to the moon light, visibility is expected to be very low for the meteor shower.
