MOVA 45 Jupiter globe

The globe, which is a representation of the planet Jupiter, rests on a perspex stand and inexplicably appears to rotate on the stand. The secret is very clever in that the movement you see is of a globe contained within the outer clear globe. The rotation is powered by the energy of room light acting on internal solar cells and by the force of the earth's magnetic field. Purchased by John Davenport in 2015. See for more information on these amazing globes.
