Exploring Nebraska

Nebraska Star Party

Stargazers from across the U.S. gather to observe the night sky at Merritt Reservoir near Valentine during the annual Nebraska Star Party. This multi-day event draws hobbyists seeking to escape light pollution in the sanctity of the Sandhills where there are some of the darkest skies in the nation. It’s a celestial celebration like no other in the country.
