The Mleiha Archaeological and Eco-tourism Project in Sharjah is gearing up for the highly anticipated Perseid meteor shower, scheduled to light the UAE skies on Sunday.
The project, developed by the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) and located in the historic dunes of Mleiha away from Sharjah city lights, will offer visitors a view to remember.
The shower is expected to be at its peak from from 8pm on Sunday until to 1am Monday.
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.”
He added: “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.
“The startling view of this meteor shower is accompanied with the backdrop of the famous Al Faya Mountain and The Fossil Rock mountain ranges, along with snacks, soft drinks and hot beverages to be offered throughout the course of the meteor showers.”
The offering prepared for the upcoming meteor shower falls under the destination’s summer promotion activities, which includes a bundle offer of purchasing four tickets for the price of three.
