Patrick Moore 1923-2012

Patrick Moore was, in his day, the most famous amateur astronomer in England, if not the world. We lived in England in the early 70’s, the heyday for the US space program. Whenever something interesting was happening, Moore was the man the BBC would turn to to describe it all to us. He died yesterday, aged 89.
