Arnold, Nebraska, sits in the center of a narrow band only 70 miles wide that stretches from Oregon to South Carolina in which viewers will be able to see the 2017 Great American Total Solar Eclipse in totality.
The last time an eclipse crossed the U.S. from coast to coast was in 1918. This is the first total solar eclipse that is exclusive to the U.S. in our nation's history.
Plan ahead to view this rare phenomenon! Proper eye protection is a must—viewing the eclipse without it can permanently damage your eyes. Sunglasses or a few spotty clouds will not protect your eyes from the harmful UV rays. You will need sunglasses that are made especially for viewing a solar eclipse.
This major event will take place on Monday, August 21. Totality will begin at 12:54 p.m. and will last two minutes thirty-three seconds, one of the longest totality times on the map. (See local circumstances here.)
Please be respectful of local landowners! Ask permission to view this event from any area and obey No Trespassing signs. There may be safety reasons a landowner isn't allowing public viewing.
