Europa 2009 - Astronomy

This years EUROPA theme is Astronomy. 2009 has been designated the International Year of Astronomy by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) and UNESCO. I guess the idea is to bring awareness to the impact of astronomy and other sciences on all of our lives. The first countries to issue EUROPA stamps in 2009 were Sweden (29 Jan 2009) and Greenland (19 Jan 2009) with Jersey, Liechtenstein and Denmark close behind.
