MOVA Mars is a model of Planet Mars, the 4th planet from the sun and the 2nd smallest planet in the solar system. MOVA Mars utilizes the patented MOVA technology to allow the planet to turn gently inside a clear acrylic shell using solar energy and the earth’s magnetic field. No batteries or wires are required! Sometimes known as the “Red Planet” because the iron oxides coating its surface make it appear reddish in color. The red appearance and interesting surface features such as Olympic Mons, a mountain some 3 times the height of Mount Everest on Earth make this a very visually appealing planet.
The Mars globes is 4.5 inches in diameter with an acrylic base.
