A block of eight colorful stamps. Featuring Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. Some show the planet’s “true” color—what we might see with our own eyes if traveling through space. Others use colors to represent and visualize certain features of a planet based on imaging data. Still others use the near-infrared spectrum to show things that cannot be seen by the human eye in visible light. The verso text explains what these images reveal and identifies the spacecrafts and powerful telescopes that helped obtain them.
