A nighttime capture of the Chicago skyline as taken from the Adler Planetarium. The Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Illinois Building on the right is lit up in honor of Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. As you can see, various offices of the building are all aglow on multiple levels to spell out "MLK" in his honor.
Chicago still is without snow with less than one inch (1") having fallen. And Lake Michigan remains unfrozen due to the very unseasonable warm temperatures we have been experiencing. Last summer's record high temperatures, along with Lake Michigan still remaining unfrozen, is one of two factors that has led Lake Michigan to its lowest water level. In 1987, Lake Michigan was at one of its highest levels.
The Smurfit-Stone Building has the diamond-shaped roof. To the right of that is the Prudential Building with the Trump Tower behind it. The Aon Building is the tall, square white building, just to the left of the Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Illinois Building. The John Hancock Building can be seen on the far right.
