Very sad.     

I remember her on TV, her books and she was also the first female president of the BAA

Sad news.  Will always remember occasionally going for a pint (or two) with her and others after the BAA monthly Wednesday meetings in London during the mid 80's before catching the last train back to

That is sad news indeed 😲

She did so much for astronomy, and when my old astro society (DDAS) built their observatory in the late 80's

it was Heather who came along to open it.

RIP Heather

"Shambolic old men in tweed jackets" was one of her more amusing one liners, when she described

Or do we.....? 😄😉
