With the Total Solar Eclipse occurring in a few days, we’re shedding some light on our Moon MOVA Globe. The moon is the Earth’s only natural satellite and is the largest satellite relative to the planet it orbits. Although the actual moon’s features won’t be seen during Totality – the stage where the moon completely blocks the sun and appears as a dark disk – here are some notable features of the Moon to look for on the MOVA Globe and tips for how to decorate the globe in your home.

In the beginning of July, we launched our new and improved baseball design. We originally launched our MOVA Sports collection in 2014 with 4.5″ Baseball MOVA Globe.

We hope this new miniature globe will delight the fans of America’s favorite pastime.
