Sir Patrick Moore, astronomer and broadcaster, dies aged 89
"British astronomer and broadcaster Sir Patrick Moore has died, aged 89, his friends and colleagues have said. He "passed away peacefully at 12:25 BST this afternoon" at his home in Selsey, West Sussex, they said in a statement. Sir Patrick presented the BBC programme The Sky At Night for over 40 years, making him the longest-running host of the same television show ever." - Mark H from Bookmarklet
We were watching the Sky at Night in the early hours of this morning. Whilst frail-looking we thought he was looking a little more lively than he had been in previous months. He'll be greatly missed. - Mark H
What a shame! He was a true British original! - Son of Groucho
