From the reviews:“Sir Patrick Moore continues his prodigious and remarkable output as a renowned science writer with this very welcome addition to The Sky at Night series ... on events in astronomy and space research. ... This is a hugely enjoyable and highly recommended read. An essential addition for anyone who has collected Sir Patrick’s books over the years or anyone looking to begin such a library.” (Mark Stewart, Spaceflight, Vol. 53 (4), April, 2011) About the Author:
Sir Patrick Moore is one of the world's leading popularisers of astronomy. He has written more than 100 books and presented his BBC TV program The Sky at Night every four weeks since 1957, making it the world's longest running television program of any kind. While still in school, he became a member of the British Astronomical Association (BAA) and was later appointed director of Brockhurst Observatory. He served as director of the Armagh Planetarium between 1965 and 1968. He is a fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society (and a Jackson Gwillt medallist), a member of the International Astronomical Union, a holder of the Goodacre medal, and former president and current life vice-president of the BAA. A minor planet (# 2602) has been named after him. He was knighted in November 2000. He was also made a Fellow of the Royal Society. As the presenter of the record breaking The Sky at Night series, Patrick was awarded a BAFTA in 2000. The most important research Patrick has carried out has been about the Moon. He is credited with discovering the Mare Orientale. He did this with his "traditional" 12 1/2 inch reflector, which still sits proudly in his front garden. His maps of the Moon were among those used by the Russians in 1959 to correlate the first Lunik 3 pictures of the far side. He was also at NASA for the lunar mapping prior to the Apollo missions. Chris Lintott, the co-star of the latest episodes of Sky at Night, has a massive fan base that derives equally from The Sky at Night and from his paradigm-shifting astronomy website Galaxy Zoo, which has some 150,000 members.
