Guide to Summer Stargazing around Lincoln

Branched Oak Observatory may not be open every evening or weekend, but they aim to open twice per month. Most of their events are called “Star Parties,” and are typically held around the new moon to allow for optimal viewing of galaxies, nebulas, star clusters, and other objects in the night sky.

Star City Pride to Host Their First In-Person Pride Parade

ART

During the Coronavirus, creatives rely on camaraderie

Lincoln is home to a multitude of art galleries which cater to the artists, students and residents in the community. As COVID-19 first began its spread, the galleries were forced to acclimate to the new realities that the pandemic presented. For many, the first months of uncertainty resulted in temporarily closed doors.
