In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, after the death of Albus Dumbledore, teachers and students of Hogwarts raise their lit wands into the air in tribute.

Fans are sharing GIFs and stills of the poignant scene on Twitter.

Most definitely raising a wand today to one of the best British actors.

We raise our wands to you, Alan Rickman. Always.
