Planetary Observance by Bruce Leighty in Cityscapes

Seemingly I am always chasing quality light and subjects to display in it at sunrise and sunset. To find different manners to display that light at day's beginning and end. Such was the case recently on a cold March morning when I worked to capture the rising sun to shine through a building designed to observe such planetary movements.

Fittingly the planetary body, the rising sun shines through a modern portion of the Adler Planetarium. The Adler was established in 1930 and was America's first planetarium.The planetarium is historically and scientifically significant.It is both listed on the US National Register of Historic Places and also is a US National Historic Landmark.It is part of Chicago's Museum Campus that also includes the Shedd Aquarium and the Field Museum of Natural History.
