The MOVA 6 Inch Vesta Rotating Globe brings the multicolored beauty the solar system's second largest asteroid to your desktop. The red, green and blue spinning globe uses a topographic map of the celestial body's relief as its inspiration. The map was created from images taken during NASA's Dawn mission. The red sections represent high elevations and the blue areas correspond to the lower elevations. The MOVA globe absorbs ambient light to propel its rotations. Solar cells inside the model power its 360 degree motion, making both batteries and power cords unnecessary for this environmentally-friendly globe. Both artificial and natural light will make this revolving globe turn.

This spinning globe, with its patches of reds, blues and greens, is a perfect accent to a desktop or bookshelf. Let this model captivate you with its vivid colors. The sphere itself measuring 6 inches in diameter, but the entire decorative globe stands 9.5 inches tall on its three pronged acrylic base. In addition to the modern styled stand that comes with the MOVA 6 Inch Vesta Rotating Globe, there is also a natural wood and beautiful crystal base available for order. All options are pictured in the images above and can be selected 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.
