A sad day indeed as one of astronomies finest goes to brighten the heavens a little more.

The Sky at Knight was the programme that first got me interested in Astronomy as a child.

R.I.P. Patrick Moore, you will be greatly missed.

A great British eccentric, his 'Sky at night' program captivated my mind as a child and I watched as he talked us through the landing on the Moon. Will be missed, RIP Patrick.

His books and tv show certainly responsible for interesting a lot of youngsters into Astronomy, myself included! So a great legacy indeed.

Sir Patrick Moore playing his own composition - "Penguin Parade" on the Xylophone!

Just had to post it for the big man, his late night show was really good, his love of astronomy came over so well, you watched 'Sky at Night' and couldn't help but enjoy it!

RIP big fella.

This is really sad news.

We all grew up with The Sky At Night in the UK.

The show ran for 55 years and both Russia and the US used Sir Patrick's work during the space race.

Nasa used his Moon maps to decide where the lander should go in 1969.

Patrick was a legend and in 55 years and well over 700 episodes he only ever missed 1 show. :clapper:

Real dedication and a real character. I true British eccentric and gentleman.

RIP Sir Patrick. Sadly missed and i hope the Sky At Night continues as the young guys that have joined him on the show for years now are very good in their own right. :pray:
