Meow, is Angie's cat spying Sue's birdie?...now to see where the map fragment is from,

aha!"Weiskirchen is a municipality near Saarland, Germany, in the west of Germany,

not far from the border with Luxemberg! Fascinating :-)

Wise words from a wise man!

Thank you, Angie, greetings to corgifeet Snooky, too!

Aha! That's the place, thank you, jimmyconnors!

the "BACH" on the map fragment is then Steinbach...

and we can now take the Bahnstrasse up to Weiskirchen :-)

I think the map shows a different Weißkirchen that is a part of Oberursel and borders Steinbach to the southwest.

...only in America would someone think to make thermocromic (Greek word:θερμοχρωμικά)-stamps!

hahaha!

Thanks folks for the comments,

Toni Hanner has sent me a sheet of US Eclipse stamps, and yes indeedy,

the moon is dark in front of the sun until you touch it...

whala! the moon lights up! (only in America :-)

I think all of those options would work, but maybe nix the heat gun in case the stamp gets damaged.

Comment by Corgifeet on July 12, 2017 at 10:17pm

Warm it with a heat gun? Breath heavy on it? Hold it over a heating vent? Hee hee! Thanks Finn for the tip. That would help you see it better, right?

@Corgifeet - you can also warm the stamp up with your finger behind it to see the moon revealed...

Comment by Corgifeet on July 12, 2017 at 4:39pm

I just read that if you put your finger on the moon stamp, it will change ... sort of a before and after thing. 

From the USPS: With the new #EclipseStamps you can make the moon appear from behind an eclipse with just the touch of your finger! Pre-order your stamps at usps.com/shop for delivery following the June 20 nationwide issuance.

You're welcome Katerina! I'm glad you appreciate all the bits and doo-dads.
