GCAA confirms spotting meteor in UAE sky

The General Civil Aviation Authority, GCAA, confirmed that a meteor which had penetrated the Earth’s orbit had been spotted in the UAE sky tonight.

The GCAA said in its statement that the passing of the meteor was a natural and regular phenomenon at this time of the year, as meteor showers become active during this period, which would then peak by 20th October.

The GCAA clarified that meteors were big metal rocks that burn completely in the atmosphere or might even reach Earth and collide with it.
