Sir Patrick Moore 1923 - 2012

We are saddened to hear the news that Sir Patrick Moore passed away today. He was our third guest on our podcast back in March 2010. Dave interviewed him at his house in Selsey Walsh, it was in the morning and Sir Patrick was still in his dressing gown. A podcast first! (and last!).

I have been inspired by his programmes both as a teenager and as an adult, and he is instrumental in my interest in the night sky. He will leave a massive hole (maybe a black hole?) in science broadcasting, and will not be easily replaced on the Sky at Night.

Although our podcasts have vanished from their online home I have managed to put the Patrick Moore interview online, click the link below...
