MOON is the most accurate lunar globe, using NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter topographic data combined with electronic and mechanical engineering alongside careful craftsmanship in mold making.
MOON is unlike traditional lunar globes that uses 2D photographs or illustrations of the Moon.
It is a truly accurate 1/20 million replica of the Moon featuring all the craters, elevation and ridges in accurate 3D.
It has a ring of LED lights that revolves around the globe, constantly illuminating the correct face of the moon and recreating the lunar phases as seen from Earth.
