Dan's mugshotDaniel H. Bennett was born in London in 1965 and lived in England until moving to the United States in 2000, settling in Northern Colorado.

His interest in vision and observation of the behavior of light has been life-long. On a trip to France as a young man his hosts called him “Monsieur Tête-en-l’air” (Mr. Head-in-the-air) due to his always watching for halos, rainbows, sun-dogs (parhelia), etc. He was particularly influenced by a book written in 1939 (published in English in 1954, Dover) by Professor M. Minnaert, called The Nature of Light and Colour in the Open Air. A Field Guide to Time-Varying Light Sources was conceived as a modern successor to that book, and adopts a similar approach, while revealing the secrets of modern light sources.

Daniel is married with four children, a motorcycle and two accordions.

Exciting news regarding my book: Today, it's being featured on the Atmospheric Optics Picture Of The Day website! Although most of the book isn't concerned with atmospheric optics per se, the section on twinkling stars certainly qualifies; and the website's charter is pretty broad, so it fits right in.

The permanent link to the page is

I asked the guy who runs the site (in which I had a photo published a while ago) if he would feature the book, and he's done an excellent job! He obviously had a lot of fun building that collage.

His audience is my audience, so I'm hoping this will help to get the book some targeted publicity.
