This Valentine's Day, give that special someone the universe as the Daniel M. Soref Planetarium at the Milwaukee Public Museum presents a special three-evening run of the Valentine's show Romancing the Stars.

Couples can embark on an out-of-this-world date at the Planetarium, complete with a romantic tour of the universe and a look at which star clusters are actually "constellations of love." A rose and chocolates will be given to each couple.
