Resurrecting the Master’s Glass

Part of the Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series book series (PATRICKMOORE)

Abstract

Sir Patrick Moore (born March 1923) needs no introduction, either to the astronomy community or the world at large. An institution in his own right, this genteel, bachelor astronomer for over half a century has graced us with his encyclopedic knowledge of the wonders of the universe and how best to engage with them. But like almost all famous names, Sir Patrick’s beginnings were altogether more humble.
