ABOUT 
+ VON DEL CHAMBERLAIN +

   
     Von Del Chamberlain has focused his career on interpretation and education about what we can observe in a country dark starlit sky.  Using resources and technologies found in museums and planetariums he has directed the production and presentation of both simple and elaborate planetarium shows with titles such as Once Upon a Starry Night, Islands in the Sky, Footprints on the Moon, Stardust, Star Pioneers, Galaxies and Journey Through the Universe. His work has carried him from the Robert T. Longway Planetarium in Flint, Michigan, to the Abrams Planetarium at Michigan State University, then the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum and on to the Hansen Planetarium in Salt Lake City.  He has instructed courses for the University of Michigan, Michigan State University, University of Utah and Utah Valley State College (now Utah Valley University).

Mr. Chamberlain has engaged audiences under starry skies in natural settings ranging from National Parks, ships cruising open seas, float trips on various rivers including through the Grand Canyon, and around campfires in sundry places including his own backyard.

His writings range from numerous published science and education papers, several books, and many newspaper articles.  His best-known book, titled When Stars Came Down to Earth:  Cosmology of the Skidi Pawnee Indians of North America, is the foundation for this novel.

Having explored a bit of Mother Earth, now living where he was born in the red rock community of Kanab, Utah, Von Del said of himself, “the better he knows the cosmos, the more he loves the Earth.”
