Day 'n' Night Globe - 28cm
The Day 'n' Night Globe is a model of the Earth that accurately shows its orientation in space with respect to the sun at any time of day or year. Whether you live in Paris or Cape Town, Day 'n' Night Globe by Brainstorm shows the way the Earth would look from space as it orbits the sun and turns on its axis.
A precise gear and motor system turns the globe at the same rate that the real Earth turns. It also reproduces how the Northern and Southern Hemispheres go through seasonal change.
Day 'n' Night Globe is a clock and calendar that shows the time of day and date for any location on Earth. It also demonstrates which parts of the Earth are in daylight. As the globe turns you can see where people on Earth are experiencing sunrise, sunset and twilight times.
In summer and winter, the globe shows how much the hemisphere you live in is tipped toward or away from the sun. See for yourself how polar regions experience 24-hour day and night in different seasons.
Living on the surface of the Earth doesn't convey the interesting and complex motions that our planet undergoes. With Day 'n' Night Globe you can in your imagination step off the Earth and see it from space.

Looks nice, but it's just so LOUD
This globe is a really nice item. It's a decent size, doesn't look cheap, and seems to work pretty well. The big problem is how loud it is. The gears at the bottom of the globe make so much noise. I can hear it from 20ft away on the other side of the office and over the radio. Great for a noisy office but not if you have to have the thing anywhere near you on the desk. You'll smash it to bits within minutes.
