There is something about looking up at a sky full of stars on a picture-perfect evening that makes people unwind and relax. It may be the fact that it brings people back to their childhood or even the humbling feeling of the vastness of the universe. Whatever the reason, finding an occasion to be under the stars probably does not happen often enough in most people’s lives. In San Diego, however, there are some unique experiences around the city that can help people do just that. Here are a few worth exploring:
Cinema Under the Stars
Located in Mission Hills, Cinema Under the Stars is a San Diego gem. This outdoor theater offers guests lounge chair seating and infrared heating to create an incredible al fresco movie experience. If by chance, the weather does not cooperate, there is even a retractable dome to avoid an unexpected shower. Offering current as well as classic cinema and cult favorites, Cinema Under the Stars is a must for stargazers and movie lovers alike.
Stars in the Park
Offered by the San Diego Astronomy Association, also known as the SDAA, Stars in the Park offers visitors of the Rueben H. Fleet Space Theater an opportunity to enjoy an educational night under the stars. As part of their Sky Tonight planetarium show each month, guests can enjoy free use of telescopes on the grounds of the space center after the show alongside astronomers and members of the SDAA.
One of San Diego’s most popular attractions by day, the San Diego Zoo, is also host to one of the city’s best nighttime events. Offered from late spring through the end of the summer, the Nighttime Zoo experience is a must-see for residents and visitors to San Diego. Here, guests can get a close-up view of what really happens when the sun goes down and learn the nocturnal secrets of many of the zoo animals.
