Tom Skilling's blog has a great photo taken of the Chicago skyline last night, as the sun set and the buildings downtown reflected a beautiful gold color. This can only happen around the equinoxes each year, as the sun hits just the right angle and the weather (hopefully) clears at dusk around the Fermilab in Batavia, where this shot was captured. You can hopefully get your own view of the city in gold this week, and try to balance those eggs on Thursday, when autumn officially begins.
