For more than four decades, Dennis Mammana has delivered the wonder and mystery of the cosmos to audiences around the world.


With degrees in physics and astronomy from Otterbein College and Vanderbilt University, Mammana has held planetarium positions at the Smithsonian Institution's National Air & Space Museum, the University of Arizona, and San Diego's Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, and now works as an astronomy writer, lecturer and photographer from under the clear, dark skies of Southern California's Anza-Borrego Desert.


Mammana  is the author of six books on astronomy, hundreds of popular magazine and encyclopedia articles and, since 1992, has written Stargazers―the only syndicated newspaper column about astronomy. 


As a noted and accomplished night sky photographer, his stunning imagery has earned him a coveted membership in TWAN―The World at Night―an elite international team of the most highly-acclaimed night sky photographers on the planet.


Since the mid-1980s, Mammana led many many public comet-, meteor shower-, aurora- and eclipse-observing expeditions on six continents and, since 1994, has been a popular astronomical and photographic lecturer on tours led by MWT Associates


A dynamic public speaker, Mammana has entertained, inspired and informed audiences at resorts, on cruise ships and as an after-dinner speaker, and has become a frequently invited guest on both radio and television.
