Originally Published: 

A simple, romantic date night is a yummy picnic in the backyard with a side order of stargazing. Set up a big blanket and some pillows so you and your partner can get as cozy as possible while you gaze up at the night sky. Pack some star-themed snacks and Instagram captions for stargazing, and you're good to go. You don't have to do too much when Mother Nature is doing all the work for you, providing the most beautiful view.

If you need a little assistance with the menu, consider whipping up star-shaped Nutella bread and hand pies. Then, pop open a bottle of champagne to make some sparkling cocktails. When you and your partner are cuddling close together, that's the perfect time to snap a selfie. Get an overhead shot of you staring up into space, and some candids of bae looking all cute while they peek through the telescope. Try to get some long-exposure shots with a tripod, too, so you can really see the stars glowing.

Since you never know when a shooting star might pass by, you'll want to be prepared to post your pics with ease. That way, you don't have to look away for too long. After choosing your fave photos, use any of these 40 stargazing captions to post them.
