CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- The phenomemon known as "Chicagohenge" -- when the sunrise and sunset create a glowing canyon effect in the Loop -- is expected to be at its peak on Monday. 

That intense amber flare occurs during the spring and autumn equinoxes when the sun aligns with Chicago's east-west streets and the skyscrapers along them. The morning commute and evening exodus of workers will take on a majestic quality.
