Hi, jleb1979, thanks for the infos! That is very convenient to change at a touch, but it will be surely very easy to degrade if it's too sensitive. It reminds me of a little scientic game we played before, which is called the Secret Ink. We used white vinegar and onion juice to write a letter on white paper. and when it is dry, the words can not be seen. But when the letter is put near a fire, the words will appear again. :-)

Copernicus of Poland was perhaps the most well-known astronomer to teach about the sun being at the center of the planetary system, not the earth. 1993

Thanks Kris! I have a Coernicus of China, but only a portrati without a sun on the stamp.
This one looks much better for this topict!

Alignment of all 9 planets in 1982, not going to happen in our lifetimes again! Are we lucky or unlucky?

This stamp was voted as the best stamp of 1982 in China.

A beautiful sheet illustrating the solar eclipse seen way up north from the Faroe Islands. That eclipse of March 20, 2015 was unusual because it passed over the North Pole. Maybe someone knows the name of the mountain seen in the sheet. Interesting to see so many seabirds flying - they do get mixed up when the sun disappears.

(Hi Idebee, Beautiful planetary system, even the asteroid belt is shown. K.)

Hi, Kris, this is really spectacular! Even looking at this eclipse on screen, I have to draw a deep breath! The owls in another thread might be happy when it gets dark. :- One reason of the Alignment stamp chosen as the best is said to be its scientific accuracy.


Sun, Bird, Flower and Me, by 10-year old Pu Hua. It is interesting that there is a rainbow inside the sun, is this also impressionist?

Thanks, Kris, Happy Christmas! This design is very unique, and it is my first time see Santa with his hat off, uh-oh! :-)

Nice Christmas stamp, Kris. It is amusing to see the Santa hat come off....
While searching for photography related stamps, a topic I collect, I just ran across this one from 1999, issued to promote recycling by Andorra (French admin) which is scott #505.




Edited to add another two I ran across from Romania.
First, from 1985, Scott #3254 commemorating International
Youth Year.



And from 1994 Scott # 3968, St. Maries Church in Ohio

Hi, Jonathan, thanks for these interesting additions! I have just learnt the lesson from Kris stamp that the solar corona can only be seen in a total eclipse, so I suppose Andorra must be promoting recycling only in total solar eclipse :-) And I have recently received a card with an interesting Chinese stamp, which I have never seen before. There is a young photographer in it, maybe you would like to take a look, let me know you thread's link I still can not search the forum. :-(

The Bavarian forest the way it looks at sunrise at this time of year.

Interesting to see the Romanian Orthodox Church of Cleveland on the Romanian stamp!

Hi, Kris, it's really nice to see the Bavarian forest on stamp. You know what , the Princess Sissy used to be one of the most popular movies in China. Sissy and his father's hunting in the forests is really cherished memories of many people. But I like better the way it looks in the warmer seasons, with a rutting grouse in branches perhaps. :-)

A beautiful sunset over the ocean. The sun's contours are irregular due to atmospheric conditions over the water.

(Hi John, I have always enjoyed that youngster's drawing of the sun being able to plug in to a house to pick up some extra energy. K.)

Hi, John, great additions, need time to digest them, but I can feel much warmer just by having all these suns shining on the screen! :-) Thanks a lot!

An atmospheric light phenomenon which occurs when the air carries minute crystals of ice and the sun is close to the horizon are called sun dogs - light at either side of the sun with a delicate halo effect. (photo by Frank Reardon, the town is Iqaluit, way up on Baffin Island) One in a set of stamps on weather phenomena, 2015
