What to Pack for a Night of Stargazing

Marty: You want to go out tonight and look at the stars?
Me: Oooh, sweetie, that sounds awesome! I'll just pack a few things....

Marty: (enthusiastically) yeah, me too! hour later...

Marty: ...and this is Ursa Minor.

Man, this new 532 nm laser is great. Perfect for pointing out stars!

Me: Gee, and all I brought was a blanket and some wine.
Marty: Good thinking. It's a lot easier to point the laser when lying down.

Me: uh huh...   *sigh*
