Within the week, celestial events are set to brighten the skies of UAE on August 11 and 12. This annual Perseid meteor shower approaches its peak; 2022’s fourth and final supermoon will shine. 

Dubai Astronomy Group (DAG) said the Perseid meteor shower is one of the special events that meteor hunters are waiting for. 

DAG CEO Hasan Al Hariri said people do not need special equipment to view the meteor shower. 

The best time to photograph the supermoon is when it rises. “It is advised that people go to a high point or find a clear area for the best view of the supermoon,” said Al Hariri.

The group is also hosting a special paid event on August 12 at the top of the highest peak in the UAE, the Jebel Jais.
