What is it
Earth by day, space by night. A 22.8 cm daylight earth globe, from Brainstorm Ltd., shows political boundaries, natural features such as lakes and rivers, capital and major cities. Illuminated night globe shows key stars and constellations with their latin and common names. An advanced light sensor automatically turns on the LED illumination whenever the room darkens, turning the globe into a fascinating map of the stars. Scale 55,900,000.
Why buy two globes when you can buy this unique dual functioning globe. The Earth and Constellation Globe has a day-time and night- time view and is in fact two globes in one. In the daylight the 22.8cm diameter globe shows political boundaries, oceans, equator, longitude and latitude lines, country names, capital cities and other major cities for each country in the world.
