City Lights Desktop Globe

City Lights Earth Globe (Image courtesy Fascinations)
By Andrew Liszewski

It’s not the biggest globe your money can buy, but the 6-inch City Lights Earth Globe makes up for it with some clever tricks. Once placed on its base the globe not only begins to rotate on its own, but it also lights up, providing a glowing view of our planet during the day, or at night. That’s right, at one time or another we’ve all had a poster or desktop wallpaper featuring that mesmerizing photo of our planet’s cities lit up at night, and now you can have a 3D representation of it sitting right on your desk. The product shot is a bit misleading since you can’t actually show both at the same time, it’s either day or night, but for $49.95 it’s a minor misrepresentation.

    It's about time somebody did something interesting and new with a globe. I actually think this is kind of an awesome idea, and it could actually be a really good learning tool for children. If nothing else, it makes for a great conversation piece. And at $50, it's cheaper than most globes anyway.

    I agree with baggklown, I like how there is improvement to things that people have kind of lost interest in.
