Sir Patrick Moore's last ever Sky at Night airs tonight on BBC One at midnight. Recorded shortly before he died the programme is aimed at beginners and called 'Reaching for the Stars'.
It should be a fitting programme to close Patrick's 50 year chapter of the programme, and a good lead in to the Stargazing LIVE programmes which start on Tuesday evening at 8pm.
Looks like being a busy week for astronomy.
