Glowing Globe – Earth Transforms to Sky at Night

Glowing Globe

This “magic” globe has more to show than what first meets the eye. When it gets dark, a light sensor transforms the globe from a map of the world to a beautiful brightly illuminated map of the night sky.

It shows 88 constellations all with their common names (far easier to remember), so not only is it fascinating and educational, it also makes a great nightlight.


  • This is two globes in one.
  • By day it reveals the world’s capitals, cities, political boundaries and natural features at a scale of 1:60,000,000.
  • By night it reveals 88 constellations with their common names.
  • A light sensor.
  • Requires a mains adaptor (UK adaptor included).
  • Size: 33 x 19 x 19cm.

The Glowing Globe costs £49.99 (about $104 USD) at I Want One Of Those.
