On Monday, August 21st, the moon will pass between the Earth and the Sun, casting its shadow on the Earth’s surface. A narrow section of the shadow’s route will get to see the total solar eclipse - - and Southeast Nebraska is lucky enough to have this opportunity. This doesn’t happen very often! The last time a total solar eclipse passed over Lincoln was 575 years ago, and it won’t happen again for another 628 years!
Escape the city and experience a once-in-a-lifetime event with an unmatched view. Join the Great Plains Trails Network and the Great Plains Bicycling Club for a unique trek on the Homestead Trail south of Lincoln. There are multiple rides to choose from, ending at Roca Berry Farm, one of the best spots from which to observe this amazing event.
