The MOVA 4.5 Inch Vesta Rotating Globe is an artistic recreation of the solar system’s second largest asteroid. The red, green and blue colored rotating globe is based on a topographic map that shows the asteroid’s various elevations, as observed and photographed during NASA's Dawn mission. The red parts represent the higher elevations, and the blue spots represent the lower. Like all MOVA globes, this mini protoplanet uses ambient light to animate its rotations. Solar cells within the unit power its revolutions, making batteries or power cords completely obsolete for this eco-friendly product. Only artificial or natural light is needed for the spinning globe to function.

With the sphere measuring 4.5 inches, the entire model stands 7 inches tall including the clear acrylic three pronged base. This rotating globe, with its swirl of reds, blues and greens, makes an ideal addition to a desktop or bookshelf. Let this model enchant you with its moody colors. In addition to MOVA’s signature acrylic base that comes with the model, there are five beautiful wooden bases available, along with two elegant crystal and two Zen garden stands. All choices can be seen in the pictures above, and chosen from the drop down menu.

How the MOVA Globe Works?

The MOVA Rotating Globe uses solar energy and the magnetism of Earth to power its smooth rotations. The solar cells within the unit create the globe’s slow and quiet movements from available room light, which means that it does not require batteries or power cords. MOVA took inspiration from Earth’s movements when designing these innovative products.

The MOVA globe is made up of an inner sphere that spins, surrounded by an outer shell that does not move. Between the two spheres is a crystal clear liquid that supports the inner globe in a nearly frictionless environment. The perfectly safe liquid keeps the two globes from ever touching, even at its north and south poles. The graphics of the map are printed on the inner sphere. The liquid separating the two objects magnifies the map onto the transparent outer shell.

A highly advanced drive mechanism within the globe propels its movements, operating on very low power. The mechanism is powered by the device’s solar cells, which use both natural and artificial light from the surrounding environment to create electrical energy. As most ambient light is blocked by the sphere, the solar cells have been carefully designed to produce low electrical energy from minimal light.

Still, another element is needed for the inner globe to rotate, as it rests in a virtually frictionless liquid. Like a compass, MOVA globes use the Earth’s magnetic field to provide torque for the inner sphere to push against, resulting in its slow but sustained motion. The models will work on almost any base as long as it does not contain iron, which can block Earth’s magnetic field.

The sleek, contemporary design of the MOVA Rotating Globe, combined with its innovative craftsmanship, make it a serene and stylish addition to a room. With its peaceful motion, the MOVA globe is a silent object of wonder on any surface.
