CHICAGO (WLS) -- The Adler Planetarium is excited to welcome guests back to the Grainger Sky Theater with several events happening this summer.

Two Sky Shows will be offered in July and August: "Imagine the Moon," the Adler's newest sky show, explores how the Moon has inspired human creativity, learning and exploration ever since we have looked to the sky, and "Skywatch Live" gives guests the Adler's view of downtown Chicago. The first three weekends will be free for Illinois residents as a thank you for their support during the COVID-19 pandemic.
