2018 ASTRONOMY Souvenir SheetΒ 

Celebrate celestial majesty and honour the 150thΒ anniversary of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada with this attractive Souvenir Sheet.

An out-of-this-world gift for stargazers of all ages, this souvenir sheet bears two PermanentTMΒ domestic stamps, each featuring a stunning photograph. One photo shows the Milky Way and the other is of the northern lights.

An ethereal band of light made up of the collective glow of hundreds of billions of stars, the Milky Way is the spiral galaxy that contains our own solar system.

Also known as aurora borealis, the brilliant colours of the northern lights appear when charged particles released by the Sun interact with the Earth’s magnetic field.

Founded in Toronto in 1868, the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada promotes the study of astronomy and its allied sciences through its public outreach programs.
