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.
