“This is one of the brightest meteor showers and it will not disappoint,” said Mr Al Hariri, chief executive of the Dubai Astronomy Group. “The Moon should be absent from the sky most of the night, meaning we should have a pristine, dark backdrop. For the best show, you should view it from a place with little or no light pollution. It will be most visible after midnight. And the showers should continue until about 4 am.”
