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!

Alex Mowery

President, MAC, Inc.


The MAC monthly meetings are typically held on the first Thursday of each month at 7pm in the Rogers Room of the Jones Physical Science Building at USC (Room 409 on the 4th floor), 712 Main Street in Columbia, SC. Observing sessions are usually scheduled with a primary and secondary observing night.
