The skies north of North Platte in the great Nebraska Sandhills will be the perfect location to experience the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse that will happen on August 21, 2017.


While North Platte is in a good position to see a lot of the eclipse (a minute and forty seconds at 12:54pm CDT), the “umbral shadow” will make almost a direct hit on Tryon and Stapleton! The Sandhills of Nebraska directly north of North Platte will experience nearly two and a half minutes of totality during the August 21, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse.


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!
