The Planet Earth…SM The Day/Night Globe

Have you ever wanted to actually see how Alaska experiences complete days in darkness or daylight? Have you ever wondered why the International Dateline has such significance in the business world? The National Geographic Planet Earth can answer these questions and many more.

With the light off the globe shows the political map of the world. When the light is on, it shows the physical features of the world -but that's not all. This unique educational tool also shows day and nighttime for any time, date, and location in the world, throughout the four seasons. It can be manually adjusted both forward and backward to see past, present, and future hours of daylight and darkness, for easy demonstration and understanding. A pinpoint light projects the actual location of the sun throughout the year. Unique "twilight rings" depict the three zones of dawn and dusk. The superb design and engineering, combined with the expert cartography of National Geographic, creates a learning tool that is fun and easy to use.

The Planet Earth has a base crafted with a beautiful matte brass finish and stands at 17 inches in height. Included with the globe is a booklet and a signed Certificate of Authenticity.

Guaranteed for life, you can be assured you will receive a globe of superb craftsmanship, engineered with state-of-the-art technology. The globe ball is expertly printed on a special stretchable material which can never wear off. Additionally, your globe is shock resistant and virtually unbreakable. Each National Geographic Globe features a time dial at the North Pole which allows you to easily determine time throughout the world. To ensure readability, the globe is created with the same clear, pleasing typefaces that distinguish all National Geographic maps.
