Canada Post commemorates April's solar eclipse with new stamp

The stamp can be purchased on Canada Post’s website

On April 8th, millions of Canadians will be treated to a total solar eclipse - and to celebrate the historical event, Canada Post has released a new commemorative stamp featuring the phenomenon.

The new stamp was unveiled Thursday morning. It showcases a shadowed sun over the scenic views of Niagara Falls, the Hopewell Rocks in New Brunswick, and Spillars Cove in Newfoundland and Labrador - all part of the eclipse's 'path of totality.'

"The main image on the stamp, created through a combination of photography and illustration, shows the sun at the moment of totality during a total solar eclipse," writes Canada Post on their website.

"Set against the backdrop of a darkened sky, the stamp image also features a metallic silver line depicting the path of the eclipse from its entrance point in southwestern Ontario to its exit point in eastern Newfoundland and Labrador. Across the bottom of the stamp is a photomontage of land formations along the path of the totality, including Niagara Falls, New Brunswick’s Hopewell Rocks and the rocky shores of Newfoundland’s east coast."

The stamp can be purchased on Canada Post’s website.
