Where to watch meteor shower in UAE next week


The Mleiha Archaeological and Eco-tourism Project in Sharjah has geared up its preparation for the Perseid Meteor Shower, scheduled to light the UAE skies on Sunday from 8pm to 1am.

Mahmoud Rashid Alsuwaidi, manager of Mleiha Archaeological Centre, said:



“Visitors at Mleiha this weekend are in for a special treat as we ensure a unique and memorable experience for all of them, something that they can hold dear to them when sharing with their friends and families.”

The emirate’s leading archaeological and eco-tourism project, developed by the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) and located in the historic dunes of Mleiha, 40 minutes away from Sharjah city lights.

“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.



“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. Transportations, road signage and our team members are available on-site to support all visitors coming to Mleiha to enjoy this experience,” he added.
