    Sir Patrick Moore has died.

    Turns out Sir Patrick has died very recently. He is a BBC broadcaster and astronomer and has been on our tvs for a few decades.

    Whilst rather more low-key, Patrick Moore was to Astronomy what David Attenborough is to Nature on television; just to give people who don't know an idea of how sorely he will be missed.

    Also he was Gamesmaster and gave the UK its first taste of e-sports.

    May he rest in peace

    He was also in Dr Who too.

    He was a very highly revered astronomer and presented the same weekly TV show for more than 55 years. His research contributed to the first moon landings.

    He was an absolute legend.

    This is spooky, this is 3/4 predictions my partner made last year that have come true. He said kate and william were going to have a baby (kinda obvious being newly weds), a major TV celebrity would be outed as a child molester, Patrick moore would die and Prince Philip would be seriously Ill. Phillip hasnt been seriously ill this year, so not 100% correct yet.

    A British celebrity, possibly the most respected Astrononomer in the world, his theories helped put man on the moon. He was also very eccentric and hosted a TV show about Astronomy, famous for his monocole and method of speech.

    Hasnt He had several hospital trips with a bladder infection ? I think the last time he was in hospital for 5 days. would say that is pretty serious due to his age.

    Well, I must say I haven't heard much of him, but it's sad when anyone dies. So may he rest in peace.

    I knew I've seen him before, just couldn't pinpoint where.
