The landmarks of United Arab Emirates have been lighted up in red as UAE’s Hope Probe – after 7 months and covering 493.5 million km – will reach Mars on February 9, 2021 after 7.30 PM (UTC+4). The Hope Probe mission objective is to capture and study the atmosphere of the Red Planet.
The nineth edition of annual Ras Al Khaimah Fine Arts Festival (RAKFAF) bears the Hope theme. For two monts (February 6th – April 3rd) more than 100 artists from 49 countries present their works in the Emirate of Ras al Khaimah, UAE. Main spot is Al Jazirah Al Hamra Old Town (pictured below), and two other exhibitions: at the public viewing desk of Jebel Jais and at the Open Park on Al Marjan Island.
