Chicago Astronomer Observes the Summer Solstice at the 606 Trail
20 June 2016
8:00 pm till 10:00 pm
The Chicago Astronomer crew will observe the Summer Solstice on Monday, the 20th of June 2016. We will be on-site at the 606 Bloomingdale Trail at dusk and remain attending to our visitors and fans till 10:00 pm.
We will observe the Sun set through the Summer Solstice Notch at the Exelon Observatory ring at 8:29 pm. Almost a Stonehenge experience. The actual time of the solstice, ( or when the Sun stops it's northward movement is at 5:34 pm).
We will also set-up Telescopes and enjoy a Rare full Strawberry Moon on the Solstice - (Not since 1967) and three planets at this great evening of astronomical events with trail visitors.
