Enjoy star-watching? Then skip Hollywood and jet straight to Chicago and the Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum. On the first Friday of every month, the Adler hosts “Far Out Fridays,” which feature family activities from 5 to 10 p.m. Take turns training a telescope on Saturn. Or check out shows at the Sky Theater. Adler astronomers conduct live lectures, hands-on demonstrations, and tours of the space-age Doane Observatory.
