  • Begin by secretly packing a basket with your partner's favorite snacks and drinks. Drive or hike to a secluded location where city lights do not obscure the view of the stars. Set up a comfortable space with a picnic blanket and pillows. Start the music softly on a portable speaker to create the mood. When night falls, unveil the surprise. Watch the stars, identify constellations, and enjoy the meal together. Include a fun activity like bringing a book of star myths and sharing some celestial lore.

Preparation steps:

  • Find a secluded and safe location where you can clearly see the night sky. Check the weather forecast and choose a clear night. In Middle Asia, the vast deserts and mountains serve as excellent venues for stargazing. Observe the safety measures if you plan on going into the wilderness.
  • Pack your picnic basket with your partner's preferred food items and drinks. Keep it healthy and easy to eat. Since it's an outdoor venue, ensure to pack a garbage bag for any waste.
  • Ensure to pack a comfortable blanket to lay on and some pillows. Don't forget to bring a flashlight and a portable speaker for your favorite music. A telescope will add more fun to your star-gazing date but it's optional.

Some tips:

  • Use a stargazing app or a night sky map to help you identify different stars, constellations, and maybe even planets.
  • Ensure to inform a friend or family member about your location for safety reasons. It's always a good idea to let someone know when you will be in remote areas, specifically if you plan to stay out until late in the night.
  • Dress comfortably. Depending on the time of year and your location, it can get quite cold during the evening. Layer up and bring extra blankets or wraps to stay warm.
