Sir Patrick Moore dies aged 89

The DWAS were very sad to hear of the death of Sir Patrick Moore. He hosted the BBC's astronomy programme 'The Sky at Night' since it began in 1957 - making it the BBC's longest running programme. We will also remember him for his guest appearance in 'The Eleventh Hour'. He will be sadly missed.
