- This date starts in the evening as the sun sets. Spread out a cozy blanket in your favorite park, one with minimum light pollution for a clearer view of the sky. Then, lie down with your partner and gaze up at the stars. Find constellations using a stargazing app, and entertain each other with stories about the myths behind them.
- As the night deepens, the temperature might drop a bit. Make sure to bring a thermos with hot chocolate or non-alcoholic mulled wine. This not only keeps you warm but also adds an extra layer of comfort to your date.
- Wrap up your stargazing date with a slow walk back home or to your car, taking the time to appreciate the quietness of the night and the bond you two have strengthened during this unique date experience.
- To prepare for this date, you'll need a snug blanket that’s big enough for the two of you to lay on. Check the weather forecast and dress accordingly, take something comfy yet warm. Don't forget your thermos with hot beverages.
- Download a stargazing app to your phone before the date. They use GPS to show accurate star positions and include interesting information about them. Some suggested ones are 'SkyView Lite' or 'Star Walk 2'.
- Choose a perfect spot in one of the suggested parks, preferably one with little to no light pollution and a spacious view of the sky. Head there just before sunset so you can enjoy the beauty of the twilight before the stars take the stage.
- Remember to check the weather forecast before planning this date. A cloudy night may obscure the stars. Also, as the night can be chilly, make sure to bring an extra blanket or wear suitable clothing to keep warm.
- It's also a great idea to make sure your phone is fully charged as stargazing apps can drain your battery quite quickly. You might also want to switch your phone to night mode or reduce the brightness as the light can interfere with your night vision.
- Keep the atmosphere magical by whispering. It will make it seem like it’s just you two in the universe.
