Solar Eclipse 2017
08.21.17

On Aug. 21, 2017, millions of people from across the world will gather to witness one of nature’s most breathtaking sights: a total solar eclipse. The last one spotted in the continental United States took place in 1979. This one will carve a path across the entire country – and Nebraska happens to be a prime spot for viewing it.

As you’re deciding exactly where you want to view the eclipse, keep our Nebraska state parks and recreation areas in mind. They’re some of the most beautiful areas in the state, and there’s plenty to do when you’re not busy eclipse-viewing.

Click Here for a full list of all the state parks and recreation areas where you can view the eclipse. Some of our more well-known parks made the list, such as Rock Creek Station, SHP.

Many parks will be hosting events concurrent with the eclipse. For a complete list of Jefferson County Eclipse Events Click Here!

More information on the eclipse path through Nebraska, as well as general information on the eclipse, are available online, Click Here

Phases Of A Solar Eclipse
2017 Solar Eclipse, Fairbury Nebraska

C1 - This is the start of the partial phase, when the moon takes its first very small little bite out of the sun.

C2 - The part you've been waiting for: The "Diamond Ring" at the beginning of totality!! This is when you can begin to remove your eclipse glasses, and (as soon as all of the sun's bright disk is covered, and you can't see anything through your eclipse glasses) watch the eclipse with your bare eyes!

Maximum Eclipse (also known as "mid-eclipse") - this is the midpoint of the eclipse. If you are in the path of totality, it is the middle of the total phase.

This is the ONLY time it is ever safe to look at the eclipsed Sun directly! The Moon is covering all of the Sun, and the sight is not any brighter than the full Moon. THIS is what all the excitement is about, and it is why you MUST be in the path of totality to see the main event!

(In fact, if you try to look at totality through your eclipse glasses during totality, you will not see anything at all! If you are not in the path of totality, you will not see this phase at all - and in that case, you must watch the ENTIRE ECLIPSE through your eclipse glasses!)

C3 - The end of totality. The moon moves on, the Diamond Ring appears again, and a very small piece of the Sun's bright disk is visible again. (It's really bright!) This is when you have to put your eclipse glasses back on, to protect your eyes.

2017 Solar Eclipse, Fairbury Nebraska

C4 - The end of the partial phase. A very anticlimactic moment, to say the least.
