CHICAGO — This city has always had a claim to fame for its choice photography opportunities and later today, you can see Chicago’s very own equinox phenomenon.

Twice a year, the rising and setting sun line up perfectly with the east and west street grid downtown. This phenomenon is called ‘Chicagohenge’ and the scene is sure to be a picture perfect moment.

The name stems from the Stonehenge alignment in the UK and in order to see it, make sure you catch tonight’s sunset at 6:47 p.m.

For the best framing options, try viewing the sunset near skyscrapers in the Loop. You can also follow #Chicagohenge on Twitter.
