World Astronomy Desinations


The Nebraska Astronomy Trail

Nebraska is not currently a notable place for astro-tourism experiences, but the state is expected to receive its very first IDA International Dark-Sky designation this year, and it's created the Nebraska Astronomy Trail to celebrate! It features several different locations to enjoy astro-tourism experiences, including the Boswell Observatory, a still-functioning observatory on Doane University's campus dating back to the 1880s. Just outside of Omaha is the Eugene T. Mahoney State Park, which is where the city's Astronomical Society's star parties are held. The Merritt Reservoir State Recreation Area is home to the state's annual Star Party and offers some of the best stargazing in the state.
