The National Geographic Byrd Illuminated Desktop Globe is an impressive model, and a fitting tribute to its namesake, the explorer Admiral Richard Byrd. With a 16 inch diameter, the world globe stands 22 inches high with the base included. Supported by a hardwood stand, the die-cast 360 degree meridian frames the globe. The sphere is gimbal-mounted to the full meridian, meaning that it can be swiveled up and down to inspect the north and south poles, which Admiral Byrd helped discover. The Replogle desktop globe features a blue ocean political map. The landmasses are boldly outlined by colors unique to their respective continents. The countries are shaded with an off-white background, set against the ocean, which has patches of lighter and darker blues that differentiates the depths of the water.
This world globe illuminates when you simply touch the meridian. The battery powered globe features an LED light stick insight which gives the cartography an appealing globe. Watch a room light up with the luminous colors of the National Geographic map. Also, run your hand along this model's surface to feel the raised relief, which three dimensionally represents the earth's mountain ranges. The National Geographic Byrd Illuminated Desktop Globe's hefty size and sleek illumination make it a fascinating marvel in any space.
VERY PROFESSIONAL, ATTRACTIVE AND PROUD TO DISPLAY.
