I had started writing a post about UFOs in Britain (it's still about a week from being ready) over the weekend which includes a small piece about
Cedric Allingham. A few hours later I heard the sad news about Sir Patrick Moore.
For those who don't know, Allingham wrote a book called Flying Saucer From Mars in 1954 and claimed to be a "contactee". However many suspected
that Allingham was really Sir Patrick trying to prove how gullible people were in believing the likes of Adamski etc.
He never admitted to it and I guess we'll never know now.
He was a true British eccentric but he knew his stuff and his enthusiasm inspired generations to gaze at the stars at wonder.
RIP Sir Patrick Moore.
