Set your alarm to see something spectacular

If the Chicago weather cooperates, a full lunar eclipse will unfold beginning at 12:58 a.m. Tuesday as Earth's shadow falls across the moon, shifting its color from bright orange to blood red to brown.  

Head to +Adler Planetarium for a Lunar Eclipse Viewing Party from 12:01 a.m. to 4 a.m. Tuesday. The event will feature public telescopes, but attendees are invited to bring their own.
