Here’s another good date idea (I am hooking you UP, fellas) that strays from the whole dinner-and-a-movie thing.

Three observatories in Boston host free nights open to the public.  You’re all welcome to go check out space with their fancy pants scientific…stuff.  Learn a little astronomy, see some stuff you might not see otherwise, snuggle up to your honey and use some slick lines like “what a beautiful view” while you’re actually looking at HER (see what I did there? Feel free to use it.)

Coit Observatory at Boston University – 725 Commonwealth Ave
Wednesdays, 8:30-9:30 PM, Weather permitting (call 617-353-2630 to check the status)
If the clouds clear up, tonight might be a good idea to try this out!

Gilliland Observatory at the Museum of Science
Fridays, 8:30 – 10:00 PM, Weather permitting (call 617-589-0267 for status)

The Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
Every third Thursday of the month – that means TOMORROW, August 19
