R. I. P. Sir Patrick Moore (1923-2012)

Yes, one of the people who helped popularise astronomy died this afternoon.  I’ll let others say more about him.

I am sad that he is gone.

The worst part of this is that the weather is not right for stargazing tonight.  At least when Neil Armstrong died I could look at the moon through my telescope and a see where he landed.

His politics may have sucked, but he was an interesting person.
