2018 WEATHER Souvenir SheetΒ 

Enjoy the breathtaking beauty of amazing Canadian weather phenomena with this colourful Souvenir Sheet.

One stamp depicts a thick blanket of steam fog floating across the surface of a British Columbia lake, a second shows a towering waterspout rising from Lake Ontario near Toronto, and a third depicts disc-shaped lenticular clouds soaring like UFOs over the mountains of Alberta’s Jasper National Park. Airborne ice crystals are responsible for the sensational light displays featured on the final two stamps. In one, ice refracts moonlight in the skies above Whistler, British Columbia, creating an eerie halo effect. In the other, artificial light from the city of North Bay, Ontario, is reflected by the crystals, sending colourful pillars of dancing light into the winter sky.

An ideal gift for meteorology enthusiasts and avid photographers, this attractive collectible features all five domestic stamps from the latest Weather Wonders release, a follow up to Canada Post’s original Weather Wonders issue in 2015.

The souvenir sheet also features a background illustration of antique weather monitoring equipment.
