Illuminated desktop globe with acrylic sphere, Ø 40 cm, hand-coated, stainless steel mounting.
The different maps are carefully hand-coated onto a 40 cm acrylic sphere by a professional. By manufacturing by hand, COLUMBUS globes become a particularly high-quality manufactured product.
Neptune is slightly smaller than Uranus, but still a giant compared to Earth. It orbits the sun at a distance of four and a half billion kilometers! So it moves very slowly across our sky and often stays in the same constellation for years. In one thing Neptune is very fast: in the rotation around itself! A Neptune day lasts just 16 hours. Neptune, like the other gas planets, consists mainly of hydrogen and helium and some methane, which gives it its blue coloring. Because of its great distance, Neptune is one of the coldest places in the solar system. Neptune was - like Uranus - unknown for a long time. Its discovery was not too long ago. With naked eyes, it cannot be found in the sky, because it is much too small and faint.
The classic and elegant yet puristic sparkling mounting obtains its dimly glimmering shine through a special stainless steel finish - or you prefer a mounting made of mirror-finished massive brass. Whatever you decide: This product of great manual skill transforms your globe into an expression of a particular quality of life, which will continue to bring you joy for decades.
