And a beautiful astronomic sheetlet with the value of one international stamp (inside Europe).
Astronomer Galileo used a telescope to look at the stars for the first time 400 years ago... Because of this 2009 is declared by the VN to "International Year of Astronomy 2009" with as theme " The Universe, yours to discover".
