Eclipse tourists from across the country and internationally traveled to a small southeastern Nebraska City.

Falls City, which boasts a population of about 4,200, saw a big increase in visitors. Some tourists came from New York and California, and as far as Spain, China and Brazil.

The city hosted a lunch, "Dine in the Dark," on Main Street during the totality of the Solar Eclipse. The event was capped at 700 people and sold out a few weeks ago.

Other tourists posted up at campgrounds and city parks.

Despite rain in the morning and some cloud cover, a breeze has helped to cool down the area and dissipate condensation just in time for totality.
