Solar Eclipse Picnic

  • Prairie Loft 4705 Dld Road Hastings, NE, 68901 United States (map)

Join us for a family-friendly Solar Eclipse Picnic! Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy on our patio, view the event with eclipse glasses (provided), enjoy some creative projects, play lawn games, and learn fun facts about the sun & eclipse. No pets, please, and no smoking on site. Please carpool, bring friends, and bring cash for a free-will donation to Prairie Loft! 

The moon will first overlap the sun around 11:30am, and move across toward the center until total coverage (max eclipse) at 1:00. 

The moon will continue across the sun until almost 2:30 when both discs are full again. Cool stuff happens during this entire period!
We'll provide a few indoor & outdoor activities for kids, and visitors are welcome to explore the grounds to find the perfect viewing spot.
