Moon Landing Forever Stamps

On July 19, 2019, the U.S. Postal Service issued 1969: First Moon Landing Forever stamps, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing. The stamps were debuted at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. 

Two stamp designs have been created to commemorate the historic Apollo 11 program in 1969 by USPS art director, Antonio Alcalá. The first is the famous image that Neil Armstrong snapped of Buzz Aldrin in his spacesuit on the moon. The second design showcases a photograph of the moon, taken in 2010 by Gregory H. Revera, with a dot indicating the landing site of the lunar module, Eagle, in the Sea of Tranquility. Eagle is the name of the spacecraft that Armstrong and Aldrin landed on the moon.
