14 Days of Valentines - DAY 12
TODAY'S DATE IDEA: SEE THE STARS
When you live in a city like Los Angeles filled with bright lights and papparazzi, often the only kind of stars we see are Hollywood's most famous. If we want to see the star-filled night sky, we need to head away from the city - or head to the planetarium.
Here's a link to a list of planetariums across the United States. If you can't find a planetarium close by, get creative and download one of the "constellation apps" onto your phone, grab a blanket and some hot cocoa, and learn about the stars above you.
And while you're gazing at the stars, you might want to gaze into your date's eyes to see how they feel about you. Scientists say if you're filled with passion, your pupils tend to dilate - which might be why most people close their eyes when they kiss.
