Skywatch Live

What You Will Discover

Included With Museum Entry +2 Pass!

The Adler’s view of downtown Chicago is magnificent, but the lights of the city make it a little tough to see the ones in the sky. What’s a stargazer to do? Join us for Skywatch Live!

In this show, your live presenter will turn down the city lights and crank up the stars to show you the night sky over Chicago like you’ve never seen it before. You’ll learn how to navigate by starlight, get to know the stars behind your favorite constellations, and witness the incomprehensible vastness of the Universe without ever leaving your seat.

Our view of the real sky shifts each day as Earth makes its way around the Sun, and so does the model sky in Skywatch Live! Every day, the show matches the view of the sky directly over Chicago on that day, so you’ll get a new perspective on the Universe every time you return.

Run Time: approximately 30 minutes


**Please note that the Adler’s Definiti Space Theater will not be playing shows between September 16-November 18, 2019, as the surrounding space will be under construction for a new exhibition. Showings of Planet Nine and Skywatch Live! will move to the Grainger Sky Theater. One World, One Sky will be unavailable. We apologize for the inconvenience, but look forward to sharing a new experience with you coming fall/winter 2019!
