This attractive steel globe depicts the surface of the moon in good detail. Several unmanned, robotic landings from both the United States and former Soviet Union are depicted included landings from the Surveyor, Ranger and Luna programs. A 60-degree wide area on the far side of the moon is left blank, as these features were unknown at the time. The globe sits on a plastic base shaped to mimic the surface of the moon.
