Time Out says

Take your Valentine star gazing at the Observatory

Pondering the heavens ain't nothing new, but we'd wager that you've never spent Valentine's Day at the planetarium before. Yet it's kind of the perfect date: there's an activity, it's dark and you're looking up at the stars. Or more specifically, you're watching the night sky as it changes from dusk to dawn at high speed. Romantic and cool.

As part of the Observatory Night Tour, you'll also visit the historic domes to look through telescopes at stars, the moon, the planets and a nebula—plus you'll learn what a nebula is. Tours are led by resident astronomers who will enlighten you about the cosmos and its celestial beings. (They'll probably use more scientific terms like "space" and "constellations" but we're trying to create a mood here.)

On Friday February 14, the 8:30pm session is sold out but tickets are still available for 9pm (at time of posting). Tickets are $40 for a spot of Valentine's stargazing and couple-y contemplation of the universe.
