LONDON - British astronomer Patrick Moore, who helped map the moon and inspired generations of star gazers with decades of television broadcasts, died on Sunday aged 89.

Moore presented BBC television's landmark "The Sky at Night" program for more than 50 years, making him the longest-running presenter of a single show in broadcasting history.
