Unlock the mysteries of the heavens as the Starship Earth II ® takes you on a journey through the universe…

Here's the next-best thing to taking a ride on the space shuttle. Starship Earth II will help you explore the universe that surrounds us - from the many constellations in our heavens, to the movements of the Earth, Sun, and stars, the secrets of navigation, and much more.

A beautiful work of art, as well as a superb learning/teaching tool, the Starship Earth II is a three-dimensional star atlas for the unaided eye. It is a perfect companion to increase your enjoyment of star gazing with either your binoculars or telescope.

The impressive transparent sixteen inch diameter outer sphere of the Starship Earth II displays updated and improved data from Sky Catalogue 2000.0, including all eighty-eight constellations and more than 1,100 naked-eye stars, plus many prominent deep-sky objects against a precision grid of Right Ascension and Declination lines.

The Milky Way and Magellanic Clouds are shown in a wispy translucent blue, and deep sky objects are keyed to type. They're all accurately hand silk-screened on the sphere's interior surface for long lasting protection.

Stars are identified by name, Greek letter designations, brightness, from first to fifth magnitude, and distance from the earth in light years. The outer sphere also highlights astral equivalents used to locate stars. An easy three step setting allows you to reproduce the Earth, Sun, and star movements for any time, date, and location in the world.

The Starship Earth II will help you understand more about how the Sun rises and sets, and how the seasons change. Surrounding the five inch diameter inner Earthsphere is a fully adjustable horizon ring to help you visualize the horizon for any location on the planet.

The Starship Earth II is hand crafted of museum-quality acrylic. The sixteen inch celestial globe rests on a contemporary acrylic tripod floor stand. Included is a forty-eight page instruction book featuring new constellation tables, first magnitude star tables, double and multiple star tables, and deep-sky showpiece tables, along with an activity section, written by the internationally renowned astronomy expert George Lovi. You will also receive a Certificate of Authenticity signed and dated by the craftsman who hand-fashioned your spectacular model of the Earth in space.
