FMU Planetarium to show "Black Holes and Other Space Oddities" program, May 28

    FLORENCE, S.C. – The Dooley Planetarium on the campus of Francis Marion University will present a program titled “Black Holes and Other Space Oddities,” Sunday, May 28.

    The program will begin at 3 p.m. and admission is free. The planetarium, located on the second floor of the Cauthen Educational Media Center, will open its doors at 2:30 p.m., and no admittance will be allowed once viewing begins.

    Looking deep into space, astronomers have discovered some very odd things. This program will examine a few of the stranger objects discovered.

    Since its opening in 1978, the planetarium has regularly shown public programs on the second and fourth Sundays of each month. The next program, titled “Our Sun,” will be presented on June 11.
