Join us at Eugene T. Mahoney State Park in the Lower Level of Riverview Lodge on August 21, 201 from 9:30am-11:00am and 2:30pm-4:00pm for an Eclipse Party.

Unless you’ve been living on the dark side of the moon, you probably know that a total solar eclipse will cross a wide swath of Nebraska in a few short weeks.

This is a big deal.  The last time a full eclipse swept coast to coast across the continental United States was 99 years ago. This time around, the path of the moon’s shadow will hit Nebraska midday on Monday, August 21, 2017.

Mahoney State Park in Ashland, Nebraska will experience a partial solar eclipse.  The eclipse will begin at 11:38am, end at 2:30pm, and peak at 1:03:37pm, when the moon will obscure 99.4% of the sun.

The naturalist team at Mahoney State Park is hosting an Eclipse Party at its headquarters on the day of the eclipse.  Visitors of all ages will have the opportunity to learn about this important astronomical phenomenon.

A limited number of eclipse glasses will be available for visitors to use.  However, we encourage individuals to purchase their own eclipse glasses prior to the event.

A Park Entry Permit is required.
