Nebraska experiences the longest path of totality of any US state during the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse – 478 miles in all!
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. For more information on all of the plans for eclipse viewing experiences in our area, visit www.2017NebraskaEclipse.com.
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!
North Platte, with our more than 1200 sleeping rooms, 60 restaurants, exciting attractions and great shopping will serve as your home base for your 2017 total solar eclipse experience! We are partnering with the communities of Tryon and Stapleton to make your solar eclipse adventure unforgettable! Stay with us, then head north into the Nebraska Sandhills to experience 2m 34s of totality, plus incredible Sandhill’s history and heritage at the events these two communities have planned.
