Illinois' Skies

The prairie is not a land flat and unbecoming, but a land fruitful of possibilities. It is the foundation of our existence for many centuries to come. The prairie is the game board on which the skies above influence the land and the future of its people.

Illinois' Skies is a quarterly magazine that features stories about the skies and landscapes of Illinois, the Midwest, the Nation, and the world. You may not realize it, but this is the story about you, the resident of the Illinoisan landscape. Whether your family has been here for generations or you just moved from another region, your story was and continues to be shaped by the environment.

Learn about the skies above Illinois with geography professors Cameron Craig and Chris Laingen.
