Hi guys

Got some news from +Dubai Astronomy Group 

As most of you know, the Thuraya project is on going in Mushrif Park in Dubai.
As per +Hasan Ahmad CEO of the Dubai Astronomy Group ,the construction has started and the buildings columns is almost built up.
It should be finished by the end of this year, where it will then be officially opened by mid next year after the interior has finished and the telescope has been purchased and setup.
Also, the group is setting up a temporary premise there where group members will be able to come by everyday of the week from 5 PM to 10 PM to use the available telescopes or bring there own to benefit from the almost dark skies in Mushrif Park. This should be ready by end of Sep 2015.

The second new thing is that the group will start a collaboration with Sharjah University in the near future. Talks are going on where group members will be able to have access to the new telescope at Sharjah University premise. There is also talks to introduce new graduate studies in astronomy by next year and postgraduate by the year after that.
