The U.S. Postal Service says a new stamps series will include an Alaska image.
The service says its Earthscapes stamp series showing natural, agricultural and urban landscapes will feature a perspective of a glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park.
The image of the park's Bear Glacier was taken in 2005 by a GeoEye IKONOS satellite flying 423 miles above the Earth at an average speed of 17,000 mph.
The photograph shows the glacier and icebergs that have broken off.
The 45-cent stamp will be released Oct. 1. The Bear Glacier stamp is one of 15 stamps in the series.
