It's a vantage point that few will ever have the privilege of seeing–Earth, viewed from afar. This globe uses images taken from NASA for a direct look at our planet from space. Swirls of white clouds punctuate soothing green and blue colors. As the globe gently rotates, it creates an immersive visual experience. It's a favorite for its authentic beauty–it's as if you're traveling alongside the astronauts for a firsthand look at our impressive planet. Uses Images from NASA Turns using ambient light Hidden magnets provide movement No cords or batteries HOW IT WORKS MOVA Globes combine effortless performance with eye-catching graphics. Each handcrafted globe mingles vibrant artwork with our patented technology for flawless rotation without batteries or messy cords. Hidden solar cells use ambient light for power, while the earth’s magnetic field provides the necessary torque. These elements work in unison to power a whisper quiet mechanism, allowing the globe to rotate within a clear outer shell. Each piece is assembled with such precision, it appears the inner and outer layers are one – rotating without any outside power source.
