Astronomer Sir Patrick Moore Dies, Tributes have been paid to the “irreplaceable” British astronomer Sir Patrick Moore who has died aged 89.

The eccentric broadcaster passed away peacefully on Sunday at his home in Selsey, West Sussex, after being struck down by an infection.

His friend, Queen guitarist Brian May, said the world had “lost a priceless treasure that can never be replaced”.

Sir Patrick inspired successive generations of stargazers with his television series The Sky At Night and wrote more than 60 books on astronomy.
