Sir Patrick Moore 1923-2012

Here are 3 of my best photos of me with the legend who sadly passed away on December 9th 2012. This is just a space filler (get it). Who had the best multi coloured shirts?
Great memories for you Tony, such a renowned Astronomer :-)

You lucky thing to have met him! Watching him on TV (& these wonderful images) so evokes memories of childhood ... he had such wonderful style ... and a sense of humour!

@lynnilou @helly31 Thank you Lynn and Helen. He never thought of himself as a celebrity as he often had open charity days in his garden. His house was bought by Brian May and is 500 years old.
