The Observer had a reporter and photographer at the unveiling and will be publishing the full interview tomorrow.

Brian May said: "Patrick was a wonderful friend to many of us and of course he was an inspiration to millions. It's fair to say that a number of astronomers in this country all owe their passion to, like me, begging their parents to stay up and watch Patrick."
