Illuminate a Personal Night Sky of Constellations
Behold the wonder of the night sky in the palm of your hand! Marking all 88 defined constellations and their corresponding 5,068 stars seen in our night sky, you won’t need a telescope or have to wait for the right time of year to view your favorite constellations.
See how far each star is from Earth. You’ll be able to see the exact scale of the night sky captured on the sphere.
The sphere was designed alongside astronomer Dr. Susanne Hoffmann using both modern and historical sources to mark the most accurate boundaries and connecting lines for each constellation. Each star is laser etched for precision.
Place your constellation-filled sky on the 3D-printed stand and LED light base to illuminate the sky in color-changing glory. Click through several color changing settings by clicking the On/Off button. Get the chance to admire and chart the constellations anytime — regardless of weather or time of year.
Includes borosilicate glass constellation sphere, cloth-interior gift box, microfiber cleaning towel, LED baseplate, 3D-printed stand and small ring to display the sphere right on your desk or table. Sphere powered by 3 AAA batteries (not included) or USB to DC 3.5 mm/1.35 mm (5V) cable (not included). Total height measures 4.5” and sphere has a 3.15” diameter.
Note: This beautiful clear glass globe is best viewed in a darkened room atop its included illuminated base. The colors are produced by the LEDs inside the base beneath, not inside the glass globe itself. The 5,068 star points (and constellation lines connecting them) are laser-etched inside the glass globe (not on its surface). Without the illumination, this glass globe is colorless and the laser work appears white.
