It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of broadcasting legend and astronomer Sir Patrick Moore. After a brief spell in hospital, Sir Patrick decided to face the inevitable at home, surrounded by friends, family and his dear cat Ptolemy. We will miss his unique personality, his quirkiness, his brilliance and enthusiasm for a subject long neglected by the general public. Sir Patrick Moore will live on in The Sky at Night, something he always knew would outlive him. All of us here offer our condolences to Sir Patrick Moore’s family and friends in this difficult hour.
