Finland 2009 – Three colourful aurorae

This delightful trio of stamps depicts three colourful aurorae: one green, one red and a multicoloured a corona. The photographer was Jouni Jussila, a Finnish space scientist at the University of Oulu. Coordinates on the stamps indicate where they were shot. Dates are not given but the pictures match images on the photographer’s website dating from 1999 and 2001. The stamps are self-adhesive and were issued on a yellow backing strip. They are listed in the Gibbons catalogue in a different order to that shown here, although the above order appears to be the one in which they were issued.
