Vesta Asteroid 4.5" Solar Powered Spinning Globe with Acrylic Stand
Fly into the far reaches of the solar system and take in the unexpected beauty of the asteroid Vesta.
We've taken actual satellite images from NASA and created a topographic globe of Vesta, one of the last remaining of the protoplanets discovered in 1807. Brilliant blue and green tones are mixed with deep reds to show the various elevations and terrain of the famed asteroid. Red hues show a higher elevation while blue shows the lower areas. Vesta is the brightest asteroid in the solar system, and is often visible from Earth with the naked eye, making it a favorite among budding astronomers and hobbyists alike.

How it Works
MOVA Globes combine effortless performance with eye-catching graphics. Each handcrafted globe mingles vibrant artwork with our patented technology for flawless rotation without batteries or messy cords. Hidden solar cells use ambient light for power, while the earth’s magnetic field provides the necessary torque. These elements work in unison to power a whisper quiet mechanism, allowing the globe to rotate within a clear outer shell. Each piece is assembled with such precision, it appears the inner and outer layers are one – rotating without any outside power source.
MOVA Globes are assembled by hand using the highest quality materials. Every MOVA Globe is guaranteed to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for 1 year from the original date of purchase when handled with proper care. Please contact MOVA globes with any questions or concerns on warranty.
