BBC News - Astronomer and broadcaster Sir Patrick Moore dies, aged 89
RIP old boy
Indeed, I was genuinely sad to see the news on the BBC a few minutes ago. He always came across as one of lifes gentlemen. His comments on the Germans recently also made me smile. He was not one to forgive and forget.
I wonder who he'll get accused of fingering?
he aint dead, he has gone star trecking
Sad news indeed. Great man and a giant of broadcasting. Sky at night was rather brilliant. RIP
Just set me thinking, I'm sure he visited our school back in the 70's and gave a talk on the US space program.
Funny how someones passing wakes up such latent memories!
Some uranus. Woops, I'me off picking up my hat and coat!
Don't go there.
RIP starry eyed ol' bloke.
cheers for the sky at night, would be in the dark without that......
Sad news indeed. I was watching some of todays astronomer tv personalities the other day, and they just didn't have the enthusiasm that he did.
Came across as a nice old boy, tad eccentric but a very British trait.
Gone to a new astral plain with the highest level of enthusiasm no doubt!
RIP ... To a great (and one of the very few) British legends of our time.
