chicago missed it

yesterday, solar eclipse would have been hit peak view over downtown chicago at 1:18 p.m. central time. but clouds and showers spoiled the sighting of this awesome and rare astronomical phenomenon. people with special glasses on lined the sidewalks, in between tall buildings and along lake shore drive, hoping the clouds to break through. but it was not meant to be. Β chicago missed it big time, sadly.

it was quite a disappointment but the windy city will have the change to see another one on april 8, 2024, seven years away.

meanwhile, here’s a dreamy moon taken from our driveway…

    That is annoying – the same happened a few years back in Cornwall, England

    Sorry you missed your chance to see it. To be honest, once I was old enough to realise it wasn’t ‘magic’, I sort-of lost interest. πŸ™‚
    Best wishes, Pete.

    Nature is this way, but it doesn’t help with the sting. I like that you give the moon instead, a lovely photo, Lola.

      what is good about today’s technology is the ability to share and some people are so generous in putting out there what they have experienced. one that i truly enjoyed was the view over portland! i’m glad you like my moon photo, Jet and thank you as always for your visit and comment! πŸ™‚

    Oh, too bad. We thought we’d have clouds, too. Good thing they cleared in the afternoon.
