Patrick Caldwell Moore has been knighted!!! (30th December 2000).
ADAS members recently signed a petition, sent to the Astronomer Royal, advocating that Patrick should be honoured with a Knighthood and at last it has happened. Well done Patrick! We know he is responsible for capturing the imagination of many professional astronomers of today and even more amateurs, some of whom have met astronomical success. In this society Patrick has inspired Colin Henshaw (who co-discovered supernova 1987A). Congratulations Patrick from all at Altrincham and District Astronomical Society!
NB To give everyone plenty of notice we have offered over a page about the TOTAL lunar eclipse scheduled for 9th January 2001 - a potential Space Odyssey on Earth.
