On August 21, 2017, for the first time in 26 years, a total solar eclipse will pass over the United States.  At that time, from coast to coast, a 70-mile wide moon-shadow will completely block out the sun for a few minutes.  That shadow, called the Path of Totality, is where you need to be to see a total eclipse.

In Western Nebraska that time will be at exactly 11:49:09am – 11:51:39am Mountain Daylight Time for totality. The rest of the United States will be able to see a partial eclipse.
