USPS Issues Total Eclipse of the Sun Commemorative Stamp

USPS Issues Total Eclipse of the Sun Commemorative Stamp

 

solar eclipse 2017

With the upcoming total solar eclipse on August 21, 2017, the United States Postal Service has issued a heat-sensitive commemorative stamp. The stamp is a photo of a total solar eclipse - a black moon highlighted by a solar ring. If you place a finger on one of the stamps, the heat from your finger changes the eclipse to a full moon.  

Pretty darn clever.  

The Total Eclipse of the Sun stamp is a Forever Stamp and costs 49 cents. I bought a couple of sheets; I think they'll be fun to use for Halloween-time mailings.
