  • Perseid meteor shower comet hit earth dinosaurs

"Preparations have been finalised where visitors can lay back and relax to watch the complete Perseid Meteor Shower from our desert Majlis setting, without the need or use of any special equipment or telescopes, though visitors are free to choose whether or not to bring one", said Alsuwaidi.

Associate Teaching Professor of Physics and Astronomy at UOIT Dr. Rupinder Brar says the annual Perseid meteor shower will be visible Saturday night, early Sunday morning and Sunday night.

"The dunes at Mleiha, especially around Al Faya Mountain and The Fossil Rock, offer a secluded experience for visitors and sky watchers who look forward to create great memories out of this opportunity".

They arise when the Earth passes through the debris of Comet 109P/ Swift- Tuttle, which was discovered in 1862.

"Every year in August, we sort of sweep through the leftovers of that comet and the tiny little particles that it left behind enter into the Earth's atmosphere", explains Brar.

"This shower is named after the constellation Perseus, from which the meteors appear to come from in the sky".

As is always the case with these kind of celestial events, they'll be enjoyed much more away from heavily populated areas, as the light pollution of large cities and towns will bleach out the darkness of the sky.
