Re: RIP Sir Patrick Moore
I'm saddened to hear that he's left us. He was an inspiration to so many, contributed so much to the study of astronomy, and hosted The Sky at Night
for over 50 years - a record. He was also born in my home county. I'm glad to hear that he died peacefully in his home, in the company of friends.
We are all the sum of our tears. Too little and the ground is not fertile, and nothing can grow there. Too much, and the best of us is washed away.
