Patrick Moore


British astronomer who has been on TV since the late 1950's. Moore started his astronomy program "The Sky at Night" on 4/24/1957, 10:30 PM, London and has not missed a show as of 2001. He started his career as a pilot and trainer of RAF pilots before moving into the public media. His books and articles on astronomy include some science fiction, a category to which he relegates astrology, "a load of rubbish." Nonetheless, he gives his own data in his book, "Can You Speak Venusian?"

For a hobby, Moore plays the xylophone.

He died at home in Selsey, West Sussex, England on 9 December 2012.

Source Notes

David Fisher quotes data in his book for 10:00 AM. Later Sy Scholfield provided a quotation from an article in The Daily Telegraph of January 9, 2007 that gave a time of "ten to midnight" The article entitled "Moore angry that his show comes out with the stars" was written by Ben Fenton and said: "Indeed the Piscean Sir Patrick, born at ten to midnight on March 4, 1923, in Pinner, north-west London, with Leo in the ascendant, could not have a clearer warning to bide his time."
