Thankful Thursday

It’s Thankful Thursday hosted by Brian of Brian’s Home. He wants us to post what we’re thankful for.

I think it’s a good thing to do each week. Focus on the positive things in our lives.

Make sure you link up to the Blog Hop at Brian’s Home and get the code to put on your blog. Then visit all the participants.

Today I’m thankful for the wonderful gift hubby and I bought for each other. We’re not much for knick knacks, but we fell in love with this. We find ourselves watching it for a long periods of time. Mesmerizing.

The rotation of a Mova globe is driven by magnetism and a photoelectric mechanism powered by light. There are actually two spheres. The outer one is an acrylic shell, inside which a second sphere is suspended in liquid. This inner sphere is covered with a graphic design, such as land masses and water of the Earth. There is about ΒΌ-inch of liquid in between, which has about the same density as the inner sphere, so the interior sphere floats with exactly the same amount of liquid on each side.

A magnet within the inner sphere is aligned with the Earth’s real magnetic field. This process is the same as that with a compass. The magnet, in turn, is situated within a photoelectric drive system powered by photovoltaic cells, which are also located inside the inner sphere. The pigment in the graphic design allows light to pass through, which hits the solar cells and allows the mechanism to harvest energy from the light. This energy is used to power the drive mechanism.

    Meowza, that Mova Globe is cool! We told The Human we’d like to have one to watch but she said she’d have to find a place where we couldn’t knock it on the floor!

    Oh my, that you even thought to find and buy such a thing is amazing in itself. I can see where it would be fascinating, especially to watch in person. Hope you’ve had a good Thursday.

    That Mova globe is so cool! I really really want one, but I can’t make up my mind which! I went down a rabbit hole! I watched a ton of videos and went to sites and spent about an hour admiring, learning and lusting! Thanks for the fun interlude! Love Barb
