MAC Logo

For over 40 years, Midlands Astronomy Club, Inc. (MAC) has existed to further the general knowledge of Astronomy in the South Carolina area. This continuing goal is shared by our members, representing many walks of life. Our members have a great range of expertise, from beginner to advanced, with a few professionals. You could say that we are definitely a group of enthusiastic amateurs. No matter what degree of experience in Astronomy you have, I know that the members will welcome you and be glad to share their knowledge.

Our bylaws detail the goals of MAC, but simply stated, they are to educate persons interested in Astronomy. The forum for this education is fostered by the atmosphere of fellowship provided at monthly MAC meetings and observing sessions.

Feel free to call on any board member with ideas, suggestions, or questions. We will try to provide answers to all of your astronomical questions and will make the effort to implement ideas or suggestions.

The Midlands Astronomy Club is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Clear skies!

President, MAC, Inc.

Donate Your Solar Glasses

Thank you to everyone that donated their solar glasses to our club. We have been overwhelmed with the litterally thousands of pairs of solar glasses received! We will be using what we can for our local outreach programs, and the surplus will be sent to Astronomers Without Borders. Again, thank you all for your generocity and support, and as always, keep looking up!

Clear skies!
