Total Solar Eclipse Stamp That Changes w/Touch


The USPS is set to release a very cool 'Forever Stamp'. In a first of its kind design the stamp will feature the upcoming total solar eclipse that is only revealed when you touch it.

The photo was taken by "astrophysicist Fred Espenak, aka Mr. Mr. Eclipse, of Portal, AZ, that shows a total solar eclipse seen from Jalu, Libya, on March 29, 2006." The stamp was designed by Antonio Alcalá.

The back of the stamp features a map showing the course of the upcoming eclipse on August 21st.

The stamps are available for preorder on the USPS site HERE and will be issued on June 20th.
