Jupiter Solar Spinning Globe
- 4 1/2" diameter Jupiter.
- Rotation powered by low-light solar cells.
- Mesmerizing to watch.
We've never understood executives who keep globes in their office. Maybe it makes sense for a travel company or a geologist, but, otherwise, what does it add that being on this planet doesn't? We'd rather have a statue of Batman.
Now, watching over a different planet entirely? We could get on board with that. How about Jupiter, with a storm the size of Earth that's been raging for as long as we've known that it existed? The best part of this decoration is that it moves without you touching it. This version of Jupiter uses low-light solar cells and the Earth's magnetic field to allow the gas giant's clouds of ammonia crystals to glide by while you watch. For a force of nature so turbulent, it's all very soothing.
