Date: 13th Dec 2021 (Monday)


Time: 10 PM - 4 AM

Location: Al Qudra Desert - Dubai

The Geminids – always a favorite among the annual meteor showers – are a prolific meteor shower caused by the object 3200 Phaethon. It will peak in 2021 on the night of Monday, December 13 into Tuesday, December 14. This year, a waxing gibbous moon will hang around most of the night, washing out the fainter meteors.
