Lincoln Nebraska Solar Eclipse

Definitive 10 minutes video for safe viewing.

Total Solar Eclipse

Witness a once in a lifetime experience right here in Lincoln
on Monday, August 21, 2017.
A total eclipse of the sun occurs when the moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, casting a shadow on the Earth’s surface. This is a very rare event, the last time it happened in (what is now) Lincoln, Nebraska, was in the year 1442, 575 years ago. The next total eclipse of the sun (in Lincoln) will be 628 years from now, in 2645.
Starting about 11:37 am on August 21, 2017, the moon will begin to cover the sun. This is a partial eclipse. A little past 1:02 pm, the sun will totally disappear behind the moon, this is when the total eclipse occurs. During totality, it will get dark, and birds might begin to roost. In the sky, we will be able to see wispy structures around the moon, this is the solar corona, the sun’s atmosphere, and is only visible during a total solar eclipse. The total eclipse will end around 1:04 pm, and the moon will completely leave the sun (the partial eclipse ends) at 2:30 pm.
Lincoln is on the northern edge of the path of totality. The farther south and west that you are located in the city, the longer the eclipse. At home, at a park, or on break from work, find a comfortable spot and enjoy!
To safely view the eclipse you MUST use protective eye wear, regular sunglasses WILL NOT protect your eyes. NEVER look directly at the sun. Eclipse viewing glasses can be purchased from the Nature Center gift shop. Limited quantities are available.

FREE VIDEO PHONE SERVICE FOR DEAF

 

LINCOLN CITY LIBRARIES OFFERS FREE VIDEO PHONE SERVICE
FOR DEAF AND HARD OF HEARING

Lincoln City Libraries now offers free video phone communication equipment for use by the deaf and hard of hearing at the Bennett Martin Public Library, 136 S. 14th Street.  It is the first public library in the state to offer the service.  The public may use the equipment from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, and from noon to 6 p.m. Sundays.   Library staff will also be available to demonstrate the equipment during those hours.
“Lincoln City Libraries appreciates the support of the Nebraska Commission for the Deaf and hard of Hearing (NCDHH) and Sorenson Communications in making this important service available,” said Library Director Pat Leach.  “We are proud to offer this added service to the community.”

“In Nebraska, about one percent of the population is deaf, nine percent is hard of hearing and more than 20 percent have some form of hearing loss,” said John Wyvill, NCDHH Executive Director.  “This equipment allows deaf or hard of hearing individuals to communicate with hearing people in real-time through a sign language interpreter.”  He said deaf or hard of hearing individuals can also call those with video phones and communicate directly.
The video phone enables Video Relay Service (VRS), a telecommunication service funded by the federal government’s Telecommunications Relay Service.
For information on the NCDHH, visit ncdhh.nebraska.gov.  For information on Lincoln City Libraries, visit lincolnlibraries.org.

 

Here are some reasons why Lincoln NEEDS a new Central Library. I think it is more than symbolic of the health of Lincoln NE. – Central Library Project | Lincoln City Libraries – Source: Central Library Project | Lincoln City Libraries
