FLORENCE, S.C. – The Dooley Planetarium on the campus of Francis Marion University will present a program titled “Messier Objects,” Sunday, April 18, at 3 p.m.
Admission to the program is free. The planetarium is located on the second floor of the Cauthen Educational Media Center.
This program will present a look at the work of Charles Messier, a comet hunter who cataloged many nebulous objects. The show will discuss many of these objects and tell how to locate them.
Because of the Easter holiday, the planetarium will break from its regular schedule of public programs on the second and fourth Sundays of each month. No program will be shown on April 11. The April 25 program is titled “Watching for Comets.”
