I am very impressed with my levitating globe. I was most pleased with the quality of the map itself. I did not quite know what to expect, but to my content the map is very detailed and accurate (printed in Germany- not a 3rd world country, however it does not say where it is manufactured).The GLOBE LEVITATES PERFECTLY, just as I hoped. Once levitating it will stay suspended continuously until interrupted. Mine stays right in place day and night. It will connect to the top or bottom if you want to unplug and conserve energy. I am very pleased.Read More
