SHARE The view from inside the park

It’s official, Grant Park was essentially the center of the universe last night. And our Flickr group is evidence that many of you were there. We’re hard at work putting your photos together with audio our reporters gathered last night, but submissions are coming in so fast that to see them all you should visit Flickr. Here’s one video based on the center of the universe theory- submitted by occasional WBEZ contributor Aaron Wickenden. Don’t get dizzy!

UPDATE: Same video, different vantage point from Flickr group member briantologist
