We’ve had globes of the Earth for ages. It’s time our only natural satellite got its due. The Moon Lunar Globe is a truly accurate 1/20 million replica of the Moon featuring every detail — craters, hills, and ridges — in full 3D, created using topographic data from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. All that detail does no good if you can’t see it, so it has a ring of LED lights that spin around it, illuminating the correct side of the moon, recreating the lunar phases as seen from Earth, and putting every impressive detail into sharp relief. Also available without the lights, and as a larger, 1/11.5 million scale globe. $425 on Kickstarter.
