USPS "1969: First Moon Landing Forever Stamps" EventJul 19, 2019 11:00 AM Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex
Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex welcomes the United States Postal Service (USPS) as they issue the 1969: First Moon Landing Forever Stamps. This is the first issue of the stamps commemorating the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing during Apollo 11.
The event will take place at the Apollo/Saturn V Center July 19, 2019 at 11:00 AM and is included with daily admission. Thomas Marshall, general counsel and executive vice president of the United States Postal Service and dedicating official, will be in attendance of the event.
Two stamps were designed for this milestone anniversary. One features Neil Armstrong’s iconic photograph of Buzz Aldrin in his spacesuit on the surface of the Moon, and the other showcases a photograph of the Moon taken by Gregory H. Revera in 2010 from his home in Madison, AL. The stamp shows the landing site of the lunar module, Eagle, in the Sea of Tranquility with a yellow dot. Art director Antonio Alcalá designed the stamp art.
The U.S. Postal Service’s hashtags for the event are #MoonLandingStamps and #AstronautStamps.
