Welcome to the web site for the Astronomy group at Francis Marion University. We offer a variety of programs to the public through Dooley Planetarium, the FMU Observatory, and the Astronomy Club of the Pee Dee.

Francis Marion University is also a part of the South Carolina Space Grant Consortium. Through this Consortium programs, scholarships, and research opportunities are available to the students and faculty at the University.

We invite you to take a moment to look through our various web pages and hopefully we will see you at one of our public events.

Coordinator of the Astronomy Program
