Nebraska 2017 Total Solar Eclipse

A total solar eclipse is a rare event in the United States. Fortunately, on August 21st 2017, Nebraska is in path of the eclipse from our western Panhandle to our southeastern corner. Because of our landscape of rolling Sandhills, farms and ranches, and river valleys, there is almost nothing to interfere with your view of the eclipse here in Nebraska.

Conveniently, a very long stretch of Interstate 80 from before North Platte to the edges of Lincoln is within the path of totality. This divided highway will thus afford great mobility in the event that dodging clouds becomes necessary. Unless there is widespread cloudy weather, eclipse-seeking visitors should meet success if they utilize Interstate 80, Highway 385, and Highway 2.
