Look To The Night Sky And Catch The Beautiful Comet SWAN Over Nebraska, Completely Visible To The Naked Eye

Nebraska is one of the best places in the country to gaze up at the night sky. We’ve got so many accessible places far away from tall buildings and light pollution – not to mention a lack of trees or mountains to block our views – that people actually come from other states just to stargaze here. If you’re looking toward the sky this month, be sure to keep an eye out for a comet that’s set to be so bright, you’ll be able to see it without any special equipment.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
