Illinois planetariums organizing two massive events especially for the sky lovers. These events will offer a glimpse of partial solar eclipse without any cost.
It certainly offers a great chance to the people of Chicago to have a look at the spectacular sight of Thursday’s sunset.
However, Weather Forecast demonstrates that it would be a bit difficult to witness the partial lunar eclipse due to the cloudy sky. On Thursday, the clouds would appear relatively darker than the entire eclipse. It indicates that cloud would not allow sky watchers to observe this breathtaking view.
Nevertheless, the Adler Planetarium will arrange numerous telescopes along with solar filters to present a free of cost view of incredible sunset.
The specific timings of partial lunar eclipse in Chicago are 4:36 p.m.
On the flip side, Illinois State University Planetarium will also provide a program with a special presentation without any charge. The presentation would be based on the eclipse under the planetarium dome.
The two planetariums are merely offering this event in order to protect the eyes of people from damage. Generally, sun spreads extremely bright rays at the time of eclipses that can directly harm naked eyes.
