Day #1805 Title: Farewell, Sir Patrick
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: I was very sad today to learn of the passing of Sir Patrick Moore. Years ago, my school careers advisory service said a good job for me would be astronomer. Instead, I went down the engineering route, but astronomy has always been close to my heart. Patrick Moore was one of those institutions who has endured for the whole of my lifetime – and beyond. He had been presenting  BBC’s The Sky At Night programme for over 50 years – the longest-running host of the same television show ever. So farewell, Sir Patrick, you will be sorely missed. May your star shine brightly in the firmament.
