  how small one feels beneath the firmament!

The Adler Planetarium is rightly regarded as one of the Lakefront treasures of Chicago. It's one of the United States leader astronomical observaties, and a true center for the teaching and learning of the space sciences. There was a time in my adolescence when I was fascinated by stars and planets. Maybe it's a phase that everyone goes through. At any rate, if you are still in that "phase," or if you have family members who are in it, the Adler Planetarium is a "must-see" for your Chicago visit.
