Time: 9 PM – 2 AM

Join us at the top of Jebel Jais in Ras Al Khaimah to observe the Supermoon and possibly spot some meteors. Also, learn about Arabian Astronomy, decode the night sky, observe the planets through our telescopes, and much more!
This event is in collaboration with RAK Tourism Authority.
Unfortunately, the moon will be up all night during the predicted peak of 2022’s Perseids meteor shower. We’re hoping that a few bright meteors would still be visible during the event.
