Out of this world forever stamps

I was privileged today to MC the first day of issue of a beautiful new set of forever stamps from the U.S. Postal Service. Here is what they are. 


The event took place at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center with several of the Earthscapes stamp images taken from NASA satellites. Today is also the kickoff of National Stamp Collecting Month. Here is my picture of the special first day of issue commemorative framed collection. 


One of the stamps selected was a wonderful picture from above Blackwater National Wildlife refuge taken by local photographer Cameron Davidson.  It's this "Inland Marsh" stamp. 


Cameron has a wonderful book Chesapeake” that is a joy to read and see Cameron’s beautiful photographs. Buy the new “Earthscape” stamps at your post office. I bet they will be sold out soon. "Chesapeake" will make a great gift also.
