We may live in a city with too many blinding lights thanks to Times Square, but that hasn't kept New Yorkers from looking up to the sky.

No, they're not looking for Spidey, which is and always will be Tobey McGuire– end of discussion.

According to Time Out NY, New Yorkers can actually stargaze this summer at the High Line for free!

Members of the Amateur Astronomers Association of New York are lugging their telescopes up to the High Line for you to try and find the stars in the NYC sky.

Meet the astronomers up there in the park every Tuesday night at dusk so they can point out all the constellations for you.

Because let's be real here–you have no clue where the Big Dipper or the Northern Star is no matter how many times people have tried to show you.

The astronomers will be stationed at the Diller-von Furstenberg Sundeck on the High Line at 14th Street through October.

So, you have plenty of time to plan out your next date with bae or finally try to see the constellations you've been trying to see for years.

Most likely, you still won't see the Big Dipper or even your star sign if you couldn't see them the first time, but it's worth the try.

Once you're too bored or annoyed that you can't see anything, head over to the life-size chessboard under the High Line at 13th Street for a while.
