While total solar eclipses aren?t that rare on earth - up to 5 can race across the planet in a given year - what is rare about the August 21st eclipse is that its path of totality will traverse the entirety of the United States, from coast to coast. The last time that happened was nearly a century ago, according to the Farmer?s Almanac.
Sitting directly in the path of totality is Lincoln, Nebraska, home of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Naturally the Huskers are making a B1G show the celestial event, and we?re proud to share with you their live stream shot from the UNL Student Observatory.
