Leonid Meteor Shower Visible This Month
November 14, 2017
Last month, UAE residents witnessed what they thought was a meteor shower that turned out to be space junk, well, we’re going to be treated to the real deal this weekend as the Leonid meteor shower hits earth (not literally, of course).
Visibility this year will be excellent because the new moon will take place on the 18th of November, meaning the shower will not be washed out by any lunar light.
The Dubai Astronomy Group is organising a public event to observe the shower taking place Friday evening until early morning on Saturday.
