The appearance of the Suhail star signals that summer is drawing to a close, and it should be visible from tomorrow…
From dashboards that feel as hot as the sun, to humidity levels feeling like they’ve gone way above 100, we know the summer heat can take its toll.
But great news Dubai, the end of summer is coming. And according to astronomers, it’s this weekend.
Speaking to Gulf News, Ebrahim Al Jarwan, General Supervisor of Sharjah Planetarium, said that the appearance of the Suhail star, one of the brightest stars in the Vela constellation, is anticipated this Friday August 24, which signals that the summer is beginning to draw to a close.
Dubai residents should be able to see the Suhail star, also known as Lambda Velorum, rising just above the southern horizon from August 24. It will continue to shine until late winter in the Arabian Peninsula.
