    He was a fascinating teacher. Loved listening to him, to his obvious love of his subject. A real gentleman.

    This is sad news.

    I'm a regular viewer of the The Sky at Night and I still have my copy of the Observers Book of Astronomy that Moore wrote and which I got as a kid in the early 1970's.

    Whenever someone famous dies in England now, I reckon the BBC get out their file from the 1970's and wonder whether or not to hold back on the tributes.
