Mar Semaan Meteor Shower night Hike with Wild Adventures

Join Saturday , August 11 , 2018 , for new adventure : Sunset Hike – Watching Meteor Shower and night hike in Jabal Mar Semaan .
A Meteor Shower is a celestial event in which a number of meteors are observed to radiate, or originate, from one point in the night sky. These meteors are caused by streams of cosmic debris called meteoroids entering Earth's atmosphere at extremely high speeds on parallel trajectories. Most meteors are smaller than a grain of sand, so almost all of them disintegrate and never hit the Earth's surface. Intense or unusual meteor showers are known as meteor outbursts and meteor storms, which may produce greater than 1000 meteors an hour. The Meteor Data Centre lists over 900 suspected meteor showers of which about 100 are well established.[
