  • On August 21, the United States will experience its first coast-to-coast total solar eclipse in almost a century. As the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, it will cast a nearly 70-mile-wide shadow, known as the “path of totality,” that will sweep across the country, moving over 14 states from Oregon to South Carolina.

    Normally obscured without specialized instruments, the Sun’s corona—its extended outer atmosphere—will be safely visible to millions when the Moon covers the bright disk of the Sun completely.

    First day of Issue: June 20, 2017 Laramie, WY

    The Forever® stamp will always be equal in value to the First-Class Mail® one-ounce price, which is currently $0.50.

  • This first-of-its-kind U.S. stamp is printed with thermochromic ink and uses the heat from your finger to reveal the Moon! Once cooled, the image reverts back to the eclipsed Sun.

    Please be advised: It is never safe to look at a partial or annular eclipse, or the partial phases of a total solar eclipse, without the proper equipment and techniques. The only time the Sun can be viewed safely with the naked eye is during a total eclipse, when the Moon completely covers the disk of the Sun.
