The MOVA globe ( 12cm ) is the first member of a new family of objects that come quietly to life when touched by light, without wires or batteries. The globe floats at a point of perfect balance between buoyant forces and gravitational forces, and slowly turns as it feels the force of the Earth's magnetic field and the energy carried in light. Its perpetual, quiet motion brings a tranquil point of focus to a room. Add more light and watch Saturn spin faster, dim the setting and observe it slowing. It really is an amazing sight to see!
The MOVA globe works similarly to a compass in that the Earth's magnetic field makes this work!
This annual gem (produced each year since 1991) continues to take the Australian stargazer on a wondrous journey of the night sky. This critically acclaimed work, produced by three well known experts in the field, takes a unique approach to explaining and identifying the Sun, Moon, planets and constellations; it is simply the best publication of its type in the world.
This thermometer allows you to see the temperature by watching the balls sink and float in a beautiful sealed glass cylinder, as their densities are such that they rise or fall as the temperature changes. You can hang this one up as a beautiful display piece.
