Five decades ago, America accomplished the impossible by successfully landing on the moon and giving three lucky astronauts a breathtaking view. To commemorate that historic event on July 20, 1969, the United States Postal Service has created two 1969 First Moon Landing Forever Stamps.

One of the stamps features an intrepid Buzz Aldrin decked out in his space suit on the lunar surface, a photograph taken by none other than Neil Armstrong. The other stamp is a black and white photo of the moon in all its beauty taken by Gregory H. Revera in 2010, which shows you the landing site of the lunar module in the Sea of Tranquility that’s marked by a yellow dot. Designed by art director Antonio Alcalá, these two stamps are a must-have for NASA fans and collectors alike. There is no word yet about the release date.
