Introducing the Adler Galaxy Ride!

Hey Chainlinkers,I'm Lucianne, an astronomer at the Adler Planetarium. I wanted to let you know about a cool bikes-and-astronomy education roadshow we're doing, which I thought might be of interest to folks here: the Adler Galaxy Ride! From 9/18-25, I and a few of my Adler colleagues will be riding our bikes to space. Just kidding, we're actually riding from Chicago to St Louis, BUT we will be mapping out cosmic distance and destinations along the way. At each stop, we'll be doing a pop-up…See More

Introducing the Adler Galaxy Ride!

Hey everybody! Thought I'd let you all know about a cool thing I and my Adler Planetarium colleagues are doing. From 9/18-25, I will be riding from Chicago to St Louis as a way of mapping out cosmic distance between here and the Andromeda Galaxy! Along the route, we will be stopping to do pop-up astronomy education events, free and open to all. If you know people along our way, please tell them to come by and say hi! More information and details on the route are here: …See More

Adler Perseid Meteor Shower Star Party in Cantigny Park 8/12

Hi everybody!The Adler is hosting a star party in Cantigny Park in Wheaton on 8/12, from 6-11pm. We'll have music, kids' events, telescopes, and hopefully good weather :) Personally, I can't help but notice that Cantigny is mere miles from the Two Brothers brewery, a place I have been meaning to ride out to. Would anyone be interested in taking a ride out to Two Brothers followed by some meteor-watching in the park and a late-ish ride back home? It's mid-week, so if you can only make the…See More

"Oh EXCELLENT Elwood I'm so glad you caught those few minutes! We had a livecast from CA in the theater in the planetarium, but I think nothing beats seeing it with your own eyes :)"

Bicycle Astronomy

This is a group dedicated to pursuing amateur astronomy using bicycles as a means to get to sites for viewing. You don't need to own your own telescope, but the more the merrier. You should of course own a bicycle, and be interested in amateur astronomy. Anyone with an interest in astronomy will be welcomed from neophytes to experts.See More
