Thereâ€™s nothing more romantic than lying with your significant other under a big, fluffy, cashmere blanket while stargazing in the great outdoors.
Since the best stargazing begins about an hour after sunset, you can have an early dinner and then head to your areaâ€™s best location for admiring the bright lights. Â If you live in a populated area, try to get to the outskirts of town so you and your honey can admire the brilliantly-lit night sky. Â If getting out of the city is impossible, you can try moon gazing instead. Â For some added romance, bring along a bottle of chilled chardonnay, music and light fare to nibble on.
As the sun sets, the stars will become more visible and youâ€™ll want to have binoculars in order to get a closer look. Â Another good idea is to invest in a constellation map so the two of you can tell the difference between Zenith and Polaris. Â You could even make a game out of figuring out the different patterns.
In the midst of enjoying the starry night together, be sure to communicate openly. Â Look out for shooting stars, and donâ€™t forget to make a wish.
