From the company: This year marks the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day- April 22nd - and here is a great new item that lets you look at the Earth in a cool new way! Glass Atlas is a glass dome on top of an artistic image of a specific region or area of the Earth from an outer space view. It comes in a variety of available images, from the sea surface to the Grand Canyon, Italy and many more. The authentic NASA satellite images provide a cool new way to enjoy the gorgeous view of the Earth. Each Glass Atlas is beautifully packaged in a unique eco-friendly wooden crate and comes complete with a small fact sheet about the specific image you’ve chosen. They can even engrave your Glass Atlas to make a great personalized gift for any Earth lover! Available online at www.GlassAtlas.com.
My take: I love this idea - paperweights with a satellite view of my world - so I was thrilled to get my very own "Chesapeake Bay" Glass Atlas last week:
This gorgeous paperweight came with a little fact card all about the Chesapeake Bay too. And beyond its beauty, I think these globes would be excellent teacher gifts too - especially for science teachers (this IS National Teacher Appreciation Week...and year end gift giving time is coming up too).
They have quite a variety of satellite images available and I'm told they also have this one from Iraq (coming soon); I'm thinking if you have a loved one stationed in that area, this might be a good item to have on hand next time your kids ask "where is Dad (or Mom) at?"
All and all, I love my paperweight globe - when I can get it back from my astronaut loving son who immediately took claim to it when I told him this was the view from space!
