Sandhills Named Number Four Location Nationwide to Experience 2017 Solar Eclipse


The website has named the Nebraska Sandhills number four in their list of top ten locations in America to experience the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse.

According to the announcement: “The Nebraska Sandhills enjoys great weather prospects with about 70 percent chance of good weather on eclipse day, estimated over 20 years by eclipse veteran Derryl Barr. Other advantages are a good and uncrowded highway system and ample hotel rooms in North Platte and Alliance. This area also has the advantage of dark night skies to see the Milky Way. A number of eclipse chasers are targeting Nebraska for these reasons. For an offbeat site, consider Carhenge in Alliance.”

The website is hosted by Michael Zeiler, Polly White and Fred Espanek.
