A reply to a letter I sent to the legend that is Patrick Moore circa 1985!

It's something I'll always treasure - just thought I'd share whilst it was close to hand before I lose it for another 27 years!

My Phillips Planisphere from the same date was also recovered in this find :)

There's no date on the letter so I could be wrong about '85. When was Austin's comet around?

I was very lucky. My Aunt had a friend who lived next door to him and knowing I was getting into Astronomy suggested I drop him a line.
