Art Director Antonio Alcala designed these stamps with images provided by NASA from the Solar Dynamics Observatory. This spacecraft was launched in February 2010 to keep a constant watch on the Sun. The striking colors in these images do not represent the actual colors of the Sun as perceived by human eyesight. Instead, each color is colorized by NASA according to different wavelengths that reveal or highlight specific features of the Sun’s activity. Heliophysics, the study of the Sun and its influence on the planets and space surrounding them, has important implications for our day-to-day lives.
