Total Solar Eclipse 2017

On August 21, 2017, American skywatchers will witness the first total solar eclipse visible from the continent in nearly 40 years. The 70 mile wide path will stretch from Oregon to the Carolinas. While everyone in the United States will be able to see a partial eclipse, the main event is an experience not to be missed and will occur along the path in the picture below. Here in Grand Island, the partial eclipse begins at 11:34:20 a.m.; the total eclipse will begin at 12:58:34 and end at 1:01:09 p.m.

We’ve had so many updates that we decided to put them all in one place.  Take a look at them here.

Update June 20, 2017: We’ve had to move the Meet and Greet location to St. Mary’s Cathedral Parish Hall in downtown Grand Island and have added a Group Walk of Historic Downtown Grand Island immediately following the Meet and Greet at 7 p.m..  Look for more information on the following pages.

Update March 22, 2017: Stuhr Museum has just offered us a special deal. We’re passing the savings on to you! Package price reduced by $5; Eclipse Walk now only $5.  Get the most current version below.
