The night sky illuminated by the lights of Chicago just 30 miles across Lake Michigan. Hoping to photograph some meteors, but knowing it was too early, I captured some stars along with fast moving clouds over the lake.
The artificial lights from Chicago appear like a sunset on the horizon, but the light comes from below the clouds, not above.
A small spot of rain was almost perfectly aligned with the Chicago skyline, blocking out most of the lights from the skyline.
