We are sad to report the death on 1st August 2019 of our friend Frank Rourke, a regular visitor to HPAG and a stalwart of Salford Astronomical Society, where he was treasurer and general factotum. Frank was a great guy and a true gentleman. He was a space flight fanatic, so it's good that he lived to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing just 12 days before his passing. RIP Frank.
