Where to watch meteor shower in UAE next week

The Perseids will peak this weekend between the 12th and 13th, when moonless nights will make for an especially dark sky.

The best nights to follow the fall of such meteors will be 11th, 12th and 13th of August 2018. While the Perseid meteor shower will be visible on Saturday night, the real show comes on Sunday, with peak shooting star activity happening the night of August 12 to 13.

The annual show is the result of Earth's proximity to the "gritty" debris of Comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle, Boyle said in a release.

In 2018, the peak night of this shower will be totally free of moonlight.

Unlike other celestial sightings that require a telescope or binoculars, the best way to watch a meteor shower is with the naked eye. Half of watching a meteor shower is waiting around for them to appear.

Greater numbers of meteors are visible when the radiant is high. People can look directly overhead to see the meteors, as long as they are in a dark area without too much light pollution.

In Manitoba, the best time to see the meteors is at around 2 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Pahud said, adding any time around midnight will be good for viewing. They aren't very bright, so you have to get out of the city lights to see them.

Bill Cooke - NASA meteor expertHow many meteors will we see?

Some meteors will appear lower in the sky as soon as it's fully dark out-around 9:30 p.m. local time.

As the night nears dawn, Cooke says viewers can expect to see a meteor every minute or so, which is about standard for the Perseids.

Plus, it's good to give your eyes time to adjust; your peepers can take around 15 to 20 minutes to get used to the dark.

Perhaps you might remember an wonderful meteor show back in the early 1990s? If you're serious about your stargazing, allow ample time for this beforehand.

Part of the reason the Perseids really sizzle in the summer sky in the northern hemisphere isn't the seasonal heat, but rather their speed, which can be almost 60 kilometers per second (134,000 miles per hour). Stargazers won't need to look at any particular point in the sky to catch a glimpse of a shooting meteor.
