This model shows the seasons of our planet
over a year’s time and physically portrays
the exact location of the day and night
terminator. The 6 inch dia. globe with 24
hour meridians on its surface sits angled
23.5 degrees on the rotating table. Turn the table
to to change the globe’s seasonal aspect.
The globe can also be rotated on its axis to
mimic daily motion. The smoked acrylic
box serves as the physical terminator. Any
date and time can easily be set to see how
the earth is illuminated by the sun at that
point in time and to see the line of sunrise
and sunset on the earth’s surface.
