:6+ What's new?
The globe size has increased – the previous version was 21cm diameter. The new globe is 22.8cm. It might not sound a lit but it does make a big difference when you sit them side by side. Also the globe base and stand is now in a cool silver style. In the night-time view, significant improvements have been made, so that the words are much clearer; the words and constellations really punch out. An on/off button helps to preserve battery life and give more flexibility. So if the button is in the “on” position when the ambient light reduces to a certain level, the night-time view will automatically switch on via the light sensor. If you want to switch off the night-time view in a dark room, then they can by pressing the button to the “off” position – this then overrides the light sensor.
