Was in Chicago this weekend and on the way out made it to the Adler Planetarium. We took in the film on Black Holes which was amazing. But seeing all the Vintage astronomy equipment was very interesting. Unfortunatly since we were on our way home we were rushed but still impressive none the less.

This isn't exactly the picture you were hoping for, but it's a picture of Adler Planetarium just the same. It's an ashtray I purchased at Adler in 1963 or 1964 while stationed at Chanute Field, near Rantoul, Illinois.
