Used outdoors at night, the stars on the sphere glow in the dark. A built-in compass provides quick starfield orientation, and an interactive meteor-maker lets youngsters create realistic meteor-like streaks across the night sky. A one-hour CD audio tour takes viewers on a guided tour of the heavens, and its even possible t o display famous sky scenes such as Halleys Comet. High-impact plastic and acrylic. Requires five AAA batteries. Ages 8 and up. 1034" L x 712" W x 9" H. (2 lbs.)
