The clear sky on the City Day will cost the Moscow authorities 64 million rubles ($20 million). This is the amount allocated in the budget to dissolve the clouds above the city in case of bad weather.

The technology to dissipate clouds above Moscow was developed decades ago. The clouds will be attacked with dry ice, liquid nitrogen and powdered reagent "cement M-500." The meteorological defense of Moscow for City Day festivities will be conducted from 06:00 a.m. to 24:00 p.m. About 10 aircraft with special equipment will be used, Moscow 24 reports.

This year, Moscow's birthday will be celebrated mostly with cultural and sporting events. The grand opening of the City Day will be held on September 1 at 12:00 pm on Red Square. The participants of "Spasskaya Tower" festival of military orchestras will march on Tverskaya Street. In addition, on September 1, Muscovites and guests of the city will have an opportunity to visit 60 museums free of charge, adds RBC.
