2017 Total Solar Eclipse
The Nebraska Sandhills were recently named the #4 spot in the nation for experiencing the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse by GreatAmericanEclipse.com!
The skies of the great Nebraska Sandhills will be the perfect location to experience the 21 August, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse. Festival viewing sites are being planned in the communities of Tryon and Stapleton, where the umbral shadow will make almost a direct hit, experiencing two minutes and 34 seconds of totality. North Platte itself is in a good position to see a lot of the eclipse (a minute and forty seconds at 12:54pm CDT). Starting at about mile marker 152 (between Paxton and Village of Sutherland), the Interstate 80 will be in the path of totality all the way to Lincoln – a distance of 251 miles.
With a 74% probability of favorable viewing conditions, combined with big, dark skies, great western culture and hospitality to experience, and easily accessible highways, the Nebraska Sandhills should be your choice in 2017.
