Vesta Asteroid MOVA Globe
We've taken actual satellite images from NASA and created a topographic globe of Vesta, one of the last remaining of the protoplanets discovered in 1807. Brilliant blue and green tones are mixed with deep reds to show the various elevations and terrain of the famed asteroid. Red hues show a higher elevation while blue shows the lower areas. Vesta is the brightest asteroid in the solar system, and is often visible from Earth with the naked eye, making it a favorite among budding astronomers and hobbyists alike.
- Uses Images from NASA
- Turns using ambient light
- Hidden magnets provide movement
- No cords or batteries
Each globe combines vibrant artwork with our patented technology, creating a flawless rotation without batteries or messy cords. Hidden solar cells use ambient natural or artificial light for power, while the earth’s magnetic field provides the necessary torque. These elements work seamlessly to power a 'whisper-quiet' mechanism, allowing the globe to rotate within its 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.
MOVA Globes are assembled by hand using the highest quality materials. Every MOVA Globe is guaranteed to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for 1 year from the original date of purchase when handled with proper care.
