Overview

The Blue Planet Season Modeling Globe shows the seasons of our planet over a year's time and physically portrays the exact location of the day and night terminator. A "6" diameter globe with 24 hour meridians drawn on its surface sits angled 23.5 degrees on the rotating table. Turning this table changes the globe's seasonal aspect - one such revolution demonstrates the four seasons and each day is indicated on the table's calibrated scale. The globe can also be rotated on its axis to mimic daily motion. the smoked acrylic box serves as the physical terminator in this mechanical model, the surface of the globe is seen to emerge from the box along the sunrise terminator and retreat into the box along the sunset terminator. you can easily set any date and time to see how the Earth is illuminated by the Sun at that point in time and to see the line of sunrise and sunset banding the Earth.
