For the fortieth anniversary of the Apollo landings Isle of Man Post has chosen to celebrate aspects of each of the missions that landed on the Moon and to showcase the people and the technology behind these achievements.

Isle of Man Post has also selected images not normally seen or immediately associated with the landings: extraordinary images to mark extraordinary events.

"The artwork for both set and miniature sheet is that of former USA astronaut Alan Bean and our Presentation Pack and First Day Cover each includes Alan's own comments corresponding with the selected images – a remarkable insight into these momentous adventures," Iompost.com reports.

The stamps are on sale from 12th April 2009
