What are your memories of astronomer Sir Patrick Moore?
Following the death of astronomer Sir Patrick Moore, we'd like to hear your memories of the eccentric broadcaster.
Sir Patrick inspired successive generations of stargazers with his television series The Sky At Night and wrote more than 60 books on astronomy.
He celebrated the 55th anniversary of the BBC programme in April, with it becoming the longest running television series with the same presenter.
Many tributes have already been paid to the 89-year-old, who died at his home in West Sussex yesterday afternoon.
Queen guitarist Brian May, who co-wrote two books with Sir Patrick, said: 'Patrick will be mourned by the many to whom he was a caring uncle, and by all who loved the delightful wit and clarity of his writings, or enjoyed his fearlessly eccentric persona in public life.

'Patrick is irreplaceable. There will never be another Patrick Moore. But we were lucky enough to get one.'
Meanwhile Professor Cox, who presents a number of science programmes for the BBC, wrote on Twitter: 'Very sad news about Sir Patrick. Helped inspire my love of astronomy. I will miss him!'
