Sunday 9th December

Sir Patrick Moore, star-gazer extraordinaire, died today at the grand old age of 89.

 

The programme which made his name - and introduced us all to the wonders of the starry, starry night - was The Sky at Night, which ran for an amazing 55 years. He only missed one programme, when he was struck down with food poisoning. That's some record.

 

I love Brian May's tribute to the great old man: "There will never be another Patrick Moore. But we were lucky enough to get one."

 

RIP Sir Patrick Moore - the man who opened up the skies to us ordinary mortals and helped us to see the stars.

So glad you got so many domestic issues sorted. There are days when I wish I had a couple of darling daughters. I have a darling son but he is a long way away
