You’ll get to observe Saturn and Jupiter at their biggest and brightest…

We’re always on the lookout for something new to do, and this August, we’ll be looking towards the skies. A yearly phenomena named ‘Opposition’ is happening and it means there’s a chance to see planets Saturn and Jupiter at their biggest and brightest.

A number of astrology-themed events are taking place at Palm Jumeirah’s amazing observation deck, The View, throughout August. It’s found up on the 52nd floor of Palm Tower, offering visitors some incredible 360-degree views of the Palm Jumeirah and other famous Dubai landmarks.
