MOON™ is a precisely accurate 1/20 million replica of the Moon featuring all the craters, elevation and ridges in accurate 3D. It was designed by Oscar Lhermitte and Kudu who used NASA‘s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter topographical data and combined it with electronic and mechanical engineering and some seriously meticulous mold-making craftsmanship. What’s more, MOON™ comes with a rotating ring of LED lights that revolves around the globe, constantly illuminating the correct face of the Moon and recreating the lunar phases as seen from Earth. You can order your own by visiting their Kickstarter page.
