While many residents of Illinois made their way south for the eclipse, plenty of Chicagoans stayed right in the city to turn their heads to the sky and witness the 2 minutes of beauty that had most Americans looking up.
With viewing parties planned by the Adler Planetarium as well as the Field Museum and more, Chicago was bustling with excitement and, as always, there were moments too good to ignore as many whipped out their phones and cameras to capture the eclipse. In case you missed it, here’s what that moment looked like from Chicago.
