Funeral procession during the funeral Mass. On May 22, 2010 Copernicus was given a funeral as a church hero in a Mass led by the papal nuncio. His remains were reburied in the same spot where part of his skull and other bones were found. A black granite tombstone now identifies him as the founder of the heliocentric theory, but also a church canon, a cleric that ranks below a priest. The tombstone is decorated with a model of the solar system.
