Patrick Moore R.I.P.


He passed away aged 89 at home with his friends, carers and cat Ptolemy.

I liked Patick Moore - I used to watch Stars at Night as a child and still do when I catch it. He was such an interesting kind gentleman and of course a cat lover.

May he Rest In Peace.
And now he is free to explore the galaxy and walk on stars and planets.

Re: Patrick Moore R.I.P.


Yes, sad news. He was an inspirational man to many - and always answered letters sent to him. I watched his last Sky at Night broadcast last week, never guessing of course that it would be his last. A real proper English eccentric and will be missed. RIP Patrick - go fly among the stars.

I'd echo what you both said - a lovely, gentle man whose knowledge was phenomenal. And a cat lover too . . . I was very sad to read the news of his passing yesterday.

I thought I'd post this link (hopefully!) to the Cats Protection site In Memory of Sir Patrick Moore. He was a great ailurophile and had asked that donations be made to Cats Protection in his memory.

There is also a link to a site for tributes.
