This summer, citizens and travelers throughout a large portion of Nebraska will have the chance to see a rare celestial event – a total solar eclipse.
On Aug. 21, 2017, the moon will block out the sun’s light, causing a total solar eclipse across approximately 468.4 miles of Nebraska from the border with Wyoming to Lincoln, Beatrice and Falls City. An influx of out-of-state visitors is also expected to come to Nebraska to witness the event.
Nebraska will be one of 14 states from Oregon to South Carolina to experience the path of the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse. Approximately 200 million people — a little less than two-thirds of our nation’s population — will be within a day’s drive of the path of the eclipse.
