Experience a once in a lifetime event when you visit Alliance Nebraska to view the Total Solar Eclipse. The best place for viewing the Total Solar Eclipse being on the exact centerline of the eclipse path as the centerline enjoys the longest viewing time. Alliance, Nebraska is located on the centerline of the eclipse.
AND, Carhenge® is the place to be.
Solar viewing areas will be set up at Carhenge, Alliance Airport, and Laing Lake park. With the dry Western Nebraska climate, and the time of year, there is an excellent chance of cloudless skies. Historically speaking, there is about a 50% chance of no clouds on the day and time, a 40% chance of some clouds, and only a 10% chance of a cloudy day.
Alliance, Nebraska is centrally located for eclipse viewers from North Dakota, South Dakota, Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, and Stonehenge.
Alliance is located 4 hours north of Denver Colorado (DIA) and 2 1/2 hours south of Rapid City, SD (RAP). I believe it was Carly Simon who once sang “Then you flew your Lear Jet up to Alliance Nebraska. To see the total eclipse of the sun…” (or something to that effect).
