Ambitious enough to pursue the great Aurora Borealis or just a little bit of a romantic? This light pollution map shows the ratio of artificial light to natural light. Head to the green for a full night sky or yellow for a decent stargazing sky. If you prefer a little reality mixed with adventure with your romance, try camping at Algonquin Park and pretend you’re sleeping in a blanket of stars. Just look up. Lake Simcoe is another wonderful option. A recent Solar Tsunami had people waking up at 3:00 a.m. in the morning to witness a swoosh of pastel awesomeness.
So, chin-up, Kid. And if that doesn’t work, there’s always Yorkville during the TIFF Festival. Toronto hosts the 35th Annual Toronto International Film Festival beginnning with Press Conferences on September 9th, 2010. Visit http://www.tiff.net for details.
