Best Spots to See the Total Solar Eclipse 2017. Nebraska - Nebraska is a lucky state when it comes to the full solar eclipse. Several large cities, including the capital, will be within the path of totality, 468 miles to be exact. Although Omaha is not in the path, you can catch the sight in Alliance and Scottsbluff, North Platte, Hastings, and Grand Island. Lincoln does get the full eclipse, but for a shorter time than those cities that fall along the center line.
