Explore the marvels of the universe with this new Total Eclipse of the Sun Digital Color Postmark First Day Cover. The #6 ¾ envelope bears an affixed Forever® stamp cancelled with an official First Day of Issue color postmark.

A total eclipse of the Sun occurs when the Moon completely blocks the visible solar disk from view, casting a shadow on Earth. These stamps were printed using a thermochromic ink that when heat-activated, gradually reveals an image of the full moon. The eclipse and Moon photos were both taken by an astrophysicist.

The digital color postmark features an artistic rendering of a black Moon sliding across a golden Sun — with the total eclipse at the center, as the Moon almost completely covers the Sun. Also included are the stamp title, as well as the date and location of stamp issuance: June 20, 2017, Laramie, WY 82072.

Made in the USA.
