These Moonlight Orbs illuminated spheres make for a unique way to light your home, your pool or your property. Made in Germany, the polyethylene spheres (and half spheres) range in size from 13 to 30 inches in diameter and operate on standard electrical wiring or rechargeable batteries. The battery powered versions are sealed and self-contained allowing them to safely float on water, and use a remote control to power them on or off. They can even be used with interchangeable color filters if you’re trying to match or set a specific mood.
Unfortunately though, the spheres remind me of the old 60’s show The Prisoner which I used to watch when I was far too young to be doing so. The show was pretty confusing (on purpose) but what really freaked me out were the large white balloons that would hunt down people trying to escape, and from what I recall, would essentially suffocate them. For those who’ve never seen the show it’s really hard to explain, but I’ve included a YouTube video after the jump where the spheres make an appearance. (Just past the 2 minute mark.)
I’d love to dig up some pricing info on the orb lights, but the Moonlight USA website is kind of an unusable flash disaster.
