John, you beat me to it, I just read the terrible news on the comets mailing list there now. I truly am shocked and saddened to hear of Brian's passing. He was one of those small number of figures who I have always looked up to, in truth he was a hero of mine, there's no one else with such a phenomenal memory and a true expert on comet and asteroid orbits. He was also known as the Cosmic Cop, - Dr Brian Marsden you will be truly missed, rest in peace. The astronomical world will never forget such a legend!

Here's the MPC bulletin...
