Re: Sir Patrick Moore

Very sad news.
I had just watched the latest episode of the Sky at Night early on Sunday, and thought he was looking better than he had done recently. When I went to my Mum's later she mentioned that he had died.
I must admit he quite scared me when I was younger, but came to appreciate him as I've got older. I think that was because of the rather aggressive impersonations rather than the man himself. I think seeing him on Gamesmaster helped me see him in a different light.
Famously one of the few people to have met both Orville Wright and Neil Armstrong.
An inspiration for so many Astronomers, both professional and those just interested. I always try to catch every episode of the Sky at Night as there was always something to learn, or at least be of interest.
RIP
