U.S. Postal Service to release special stamp to commemorate rare total solar eclipse

The U.S. Postal Service will reportedly soon release a first-of-its-kind stamp in commemoration of the rare total solar eclipse that is going to take place on 21st of August this year.

The Total Solar Eclipse Forever stamp will transform into an image of the Moon, Earth’s only natural satellite, from the heat of a finger when a person will touch it.

Members of the public are being urged to share the news of the upcoming release of the Total Solar Eclipse Forever stamp on social media with the help of the hashtag #EclipseStamps.

The ticket will be released in a First-Day-of-Issue ceremony, which is scheduled to take place at the Art Museum of the University of Wyoming (UW) in Laramie on 20th of June. The institution is celebrating the summer solstice on that day.

The eclipse of the Sun will travel a narrow path across the entire United States for the first time since 1918.

Tens of millions of Americans are expected to be able to view the rare solar eclipse in August. According to astronomers, such a rare event hasn’t been witnessed on the U.S. mainland since 1979.
