Navy Pier Saturday Night Fireworks Chicago Skyline Panoramic...

Each summer in Chicago, Navy Pier offers up a pretty sick fireworks display every Wednesday and Saturday night. Here is the view of the fireworks display from the Adler Planetarium, one of my favorite locations to watch the display. This was a special night however, since Lollapalooza 2012 was going on in grant park. Red Hot Chili Peppers were playing on one of the main stages and we could hear the music quite well echoing off the buildings. They also had a few multi-colored spotlights shining high in the sky, which helped give the clouds some color that normally would not be there. If you look closely, you can see the blueish hue in the top center of the photo and some lighter orange in the clouds over the AON center, both areas were lit up by those lights which added a cool effect in my opinion. The weather was nice and cool and it was a perfect night to watch the display. If your in the Chicago area and want to check out the schedule of upcoming displays, you can do so here: http://www.navypier.com/things2do/fireworks.html
