I see that photobucket, having restored their images, have now blurred them. They seem determined to do the wrong thing.

I acquired another set of the Dan Dare stamps very cheaply and was pleased to find that rather than being fully stuck in, they were attached using stamp hinges. So, now I have a mint set, albeit mounted mint.

Yes, quite bizarre that Photobucket would blur its pictures.  That makes it worse than useless to everybody!

So here is my latest Space issue.  Plenty of extras available for anybody who would like to add some to your collection: I am always amenable to a trade!


Occussi-Ambeno 2019 50th anniversary of the first human landing on the Moon.

The first Moon Walk took place in 1969, which was just one year after Occussi-Ambeno gained its independence and started issuing its own stamps.

This set was issued on 20th July 2019.

A special overprint was issued to celebrate the actual moon landing, and that was Occussi-Ambeno's first-ever commemorative set (if you exclude the "independence" overprints.)

Astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed their Apollo Lunar Module on 20th July, 1969, and walked on the lunar surface, while Michael Collins remained in lunar orbit in the command and service module, and all three landed safely on Earth on 24th July. Five subsequent Apollo missions also landed astronauts on the Moon, the last in December 1972. In these six spaceflights, twelve men walked on the Moon.

Apollo ran from 1961 to 1972, with the first crewed flight in 1968. It achieved its goal of crewed lunar landing, despite the major setback of a 1967 Apollo 1 cabin fire that killed the entire crew during a prelaunch test. Five of the remaining six missions achieved successful landings, but the Apollo 13 landing was prevented by an oxygen tank explosion in transit to the Moon, which destroyed the service module's capability to provide electrical power, crippling the CSM's propulsion and life support systems. The crew returned to Earth safely by using the lunar module as a "lifeboat" for these functions. Apollo used Saturn family rockets as launch vehicles, which were also used for an Apollo Applications Program, which consisted of Skylab, a space station that supported three crewed missions in 1973–74, and the Apollo–Soyuz Test Project, a joint US-Soviet Union Earth-orbit mission in 1975.

The final Apollo 17 mission marked the sixth Moon landing and the ninth crewed mission beyond low Earth orbit. The program returned 382 kg of lunar rocks and soil to Earth, greatly contributing to the understanding of the Moon's composition and geological history.
