Had enough of the scorching UAE heat? Well, we’ve got some good news for you.
It appears the sweltering summer days are now numbered, according to a UAE astronomer.
Ibrahim Al Jarwan, a prominent member of the Arab Union for Astronomy and Space Sciences, took to Twitter to announce the Suhail star is on the horizon, which signifies an end to the sweltering UAE heat.
He announced the UAE can expect to see the star appear around August 24, 2022.
طلوع سهيل.. أهل الحساب والتقويم يأخذون بالطلوع الاصطلاحي أو الافتراضي..مع تلمس تغير الجو او تغيير الملامح الطبيعية.
لكنه كنجم ، لا يشاهد أو يطلع وسط الجزيرة العربية قبل 24 أغسطس.#سهيل#موسم_سهيل#السنة_السهيلية#نجم_سهيل#النجم_سهيل#حساب_الدرور pic.twitter.com/9uQZY85nQt

The Suhail star is one of the brightest stars in the sky and is estimated to be 313 light-years away from Earth.
During ancient times, Arabs would learn through to the stars when hot periods would come, when the rain would come and so on, which would help farmers, seasons for grazing and travel, fishing season and more.
Given that temperatures recently peaked at 50 degrees celsius in some parts of the UAE, news that cooler weather is on the horizon will be welcomed with open arms.
