Astronomers of all ages are drawn to the MOVA Venus - 4.5-inch Rotating Globe, part of the truly unique MOVA Planet Collection. This gorgeous sphere actually rotates at a perfect point of balance between gravitational forces and the buoyancy of surrounding fluids, bringing to life the energy of ambient light and the force of the Earth's magnetic field.

Designed to move at a perfectly quite and peaceful pace, this globe is a pioneer among its kind. The MOVA Venus - 4.5-inch Rotating Globe is featured on a beautifully pristine, three pronged acrylic base that elevates the sphere to 7.5-inch tall, making it the perfect size for bookshelves, desks and tabletops.
Inside each MOVA globe is a patented, ultra low friction drive mechanism and a set of special solar cells.
The globe allows enough light to pass through and energize these solar cells to power the drive mechanism.
MOVA globe may turn on a mere 1 to 5 millionth of a watt of electricity provided by these solar cells!

Superb craftsmanship shines through, and every inch of this magnificent world globe was created with the highest quality in mind. What else would you expect with such a fine work of art? Don't miss your chance to own a gorgeous globe that is powered by only ambient light, with no power cords or batteries!
Additional Information
About the MOVA Globe

The world's most advanced globe, the MOVA globe rotates silently and is inspired by the earth itself. It requires no power cords or batteries, only the natural light of your home or office. The three-fingered acrylic base is included with every MOVA globe.

How the MOVA Globe Works

The MOVA globe rotates peacefully and silently using only the energy of room light and the force of the earth's magnetic field. This is possible because the MOVA globe is actually an inner globe that rotates and is contained within an outer shell made of very clear acrylic that does not rotate. The thin space between the inner globe and outer shell is filled with a safe, perfectly clear fluid that buoyantly supports the inner globe completely out of contact with the outer shell. This inner globe, floating and turning in a virtually friction-free environment and energized by light, is analogous to the earth itself. The MOVA globe is being brought to market at a time when people everywhere will understand and appreciate this analogy.

The optical properties of the outer sell and fluid are carefully chosen so that the graphic features on the surface of the inner globe are magnified and appear to be on the outer surface of the outer shell. This means that the outer shell actually appears to move.

The MOVA globe can rest on an attractive three fingered stand that is provided, or on just about any other kind of stand that can be chosen to complement it's graphic design. The MOVA globe appears to rotate in spite of resting on the stand, in quiet defiance of commonly held ideas about the laws of friction.

A carefully designed, and highly efficient drive mechanism within the inner globe drives the rotation even in room light. Energy for the drive is provided by very advanced solar cells within the inner globe, illuminated by light passing through the graphic on the globe. The drive includes a magnetic element that reacts with the earth's magnetic field, much as a common compass does, to provide torque to drive the globe.

All of these elements of the MOVA globe cooperate to create a beautiful, magical object that provides a meditative point of focus to any room.

Reviewer: Kerry Peterson from Lindale , TX United States  
I saw these globes while vacationing and ordered one online before I got home.  It was waiting for me when I got home & I need to take it out of my office because everyone just stares at it. I LOVE IT.
