North Platte is partnering with the great Nebraska Sandhills communities of Tryon and Stapleton, each on the central line of totality with 2 minutes and 34 seconds of totality!

Both communities are planning a full schedule of events to fill the entire eclipse weekend! In addition, the community of North Platte (1 minute 43 seconds of totality) will be hosting events that will immerse you in our western culture and help you learn about eclipses. These include great events at the Golden Spike Tower and Visitor Center, the Buffalo Bill Ranch State Historical Park, Lincoln County Historical Museum, Feather River Vineyards and so much more! Be sure to check back here often for updates.
