There’s An Incredible Meteor Shower Happening This Summer And Nebraska Has A Front Row Seat

Every year in the late summer, the night sky is graced with the spectacular sight of countless “shooting stars.” What we’re really seeing is the Perseids meteor shower, an awe-inspiring celestial event.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
