A romantic day or night spent gazing at the stars

Lick Observatory, Mount Hamilton

Located on Mount Hamilton, just east of San Jose, is the Lick Observatory.  For couples that enjoy learning new things together and have an appreciation for the stars, this can be a great way to spend a day or night.  The observatory is open to the public every afternoon or you can attend one of their special events, such as the Music of the Spheres Concert Series, which presents music, stargazing and talks from the experts, or the Friday Night Visitors Program, where you can gaze and learn more about the universe from those that work there.  Or you can make a night of it and pay a little extra money to get the V.I.P. treatment, featuring private viewings, a buffet, wine and more.  Is anyone out there a stargazer?
