Looking for a Unique Eclipse Experience?

The town of Alliance, Nebraska is not a destination for many people. That is likely to change for the eclipse 2017 weekend. One of the primary reasons is a structure/attraction about 5 miles north of town called Carhenge. This was constructed in the 1980s as an art project that has turned into a landmark. The comparison to Britain’s Stonehenge is intentional. And if you know anything about Stonehenge, there are astronomical alignments, one of which draws hundreds and thousands of people there for sunrise on the summer solstice. I’m not sure about the alignment of Carhenge, but the design relationship is clear. I am sure that viewing the August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse from there would be a memorable and crowd-filled experience.
