Cover from Belgium no. 3

A splendid cover received on 9 April 2009 from Belgium, courtesy of Thomas from Ieper. It is my first received Europa stamp of 2009, and it goes with a special cancellation of the first day of issue!

This year's theme of Europa stamps is astronomy (the Internation Year of Astronomy), a great topic promising beautiful stamps, and this sheet is one of them; designed by Thierry Mordant, with facial value of Class 1 - currently 90 eurocent.

Thank you Thomas for this terrific surprise!!!
