Lunar Spectacle Brings Them Out Early, to Homestead National Monument

BEATRICE –  About 30 cars were in the lot of the Homestead National Monument of America’s Heritage Center this morning, with people getting a look at a full lunar eclipse.

Monument Chief of Interpretation and Resource Management, Susan Cook, says clouds occasionally obscured the view somewhat, but people got a good chance to see the celestial happening, when the skies would break up.  

Cook says there’s a lot going on, with this eclipse.

Cook says eclipse events of the sun and moon have helped extend the reach of the national monument near Beatrice.

People were on the patio along the west side of the Heritage Center early today, with a good view of the moon to the west, over the native prairie.
