2 in 1 Globe Earth by Day, Earth by Night
Awarded a ’Commended’ Medal in the 2013 Toy Shop UK Independent Toy Awards and featured in The Good Toy Guide, this amazing globe shows the earth by day and by night – 2 globes in 1!
Why buy two globes when you can buy this unique dual functioning globe. The Earth by Day Earth by Night 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. By night, cleverly, the globe magically transforms into an illuminated map of city lights – the Earth at night as seen from space. The globe is illuminated with colour changing LED’s which gently scroll from red to green to white and blue.
An advanced light sensor automatically turns on the LED illumination whenever the ambient light in the room reaches a trigger level of darkness. There is also an on/off switch which allows you to turn off the night-time view and thus conserve battery power. You can also purchase an electrical adaptor separately (not included) that you can plug into the globe and power it off mains electrics. Each box contains a specification to enable you to purchase such an adaptor.
The globe is at a scale of 1:55,900,00 and it sits on a sturdy and stylish silver stand. The Earth by Day Earth by Night Globe is an interesting learning tool for geographers and also a great feature for any bedroom, living room or study. A truly, unique globe.
The ideal gift for would-be astronomers and budding geographers.
Includes socket for optional power adaptor.
