Postal Service Issues Eclipse Stamp

The U.S. Post Office released a stamp to commemorate the upcoming solar eclipse on Monday.

The stamp was unveiled in June and has been available for purchase since then.

The stamp shows a picture of a black circle, which fades into the moon when exposed to body heat. The photo of the moon on the stamp was taken by retired NASA astrophysicist Fred Espenak, who is considered an expert on eclipses.
