Chicago’s Eclipse Fest runs from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the Adler grounds and in the adjacent parking lot. Guests will get “#EquippedToEclipse” with free safe solar viewing glasses, according to the planetarium, and can also enjoy live entertainment, hands-on science experiments, eclipse trivia and other activities.

 

That’s the last time Chicago experienced a solar eclipse like it will Aug. 21, when starting at 11:54 a.m., the moon will start to block our view of the sun, covering up to 87 percent of it by early afternoon.   The event will mark the first solar eclipse visible in parts of the U.S. since 1979. The last time Chicago was this close to the path of totality – the path of the moon’s shadow as it moves across Earth – was 92 years ago.
