Stars, Moons or Planets

The most recent stamp I have from France was issued on 4 May 2009 and its a € denomination.

Two weeks ago I showed a Polish stamp depicting a statue of Nicolaus Copernicus

The biggest and oldest planetarium was founded in 1955 to commemorate him. It's located in the Silesian Central Park.

Hi Bob - interesting to see these ... we're finding out more (or at least investigating) so much up in those wonderful star studded skies ... thanks for showing us these - cheers Hilary

That is one cool looking planetarium.

Beautiful stamps! Saturnus keeps on being fascinating, and I always am amazed how people managed to observe the planets and stars so well even decades and ages ago - must be thanks to telescopes and planetaria.
