He was a one off, and spent much of his time helping people. When I was 10, having read my Observer's Book of Astronomy, I wrote to Patrick Moore in 1965 bemoaning the fact that many constellations didn't look anything like they were supposed to! I helpfully sent drawings of star patterns that more closely matched the names. This was the great man's reply, typed as ever on his knackered typewriter, no doubt at a furious pace. May you float forever in the cosmos Patrick.

Kind words Bruce.  On the tv programme I always noticed that typewriter, lurking in his study - I think that it exemplified the man himself, old,proven, does what it says on the tin and no fancy attachments.
