A Little Bit About The City Lights Globe From ThinkGeek
Capture the beauty of lights from Earth at nightWe are so jealous of astronauts. Listening to NASA folks describing what it's like to be up in space, experiencing zero gravity, eating astronaut ice cream, and seeing our planet from way on high... oh, we're green with envy. And looking at the City Lights Globe makes us wonder how the view of the Earth at night must change as we develop more and more of it.
The City Lights Globe illuminates the cities of the world as they're seen from orbit. As it automatically rotates, the lights glow in the areas where night has fallen. Just place your City Lights Globe on its shiny mirrored base and it will do the rest. Just a warning, though, we put one on our desk and zoned out for at least an hour, daydreaming about being astronauts.
