A Mysterious Meteor Shower Flew Over Dubai Last Night And Social Media’s Reaction Was Pure Gold


Last night a mysterious meteor shower flew over Dubai.

It was spotted in Abu Dhabi and throughout Dubai, with sightings recorded from approximately 7.40pm.

Comparisons were initially made to space debris that would eventually burn out, however an Instagram from HH Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum and a tweet from the Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre confirms that a meteorite flew above us.

As usual residents were quick, to Snap, Insta, Tweet (and all of the above) their reactions and imagery, here are the best:

This was one of the best

Diwali celebrations….or a comet?!

Diwali celebrations in the UAE have reached new heights…(!)

Or was it Superman?

Some people were disbelieving

There was a bit of confusion

Some thought it was a ‘fireball’

Or maybe space junk?!

This guy thinks he knew the truth of it

Most were just pretty excited about the whole thing!

And were simply happy to see it

Captured near Sharjah – people took to social media to see other reactions

Who knows when a surprise meteor shower will burn above Dubai again…
