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.
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.
"Keep looking up."
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.
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.
