Day/Night Globe

See where the sun is and isn't striking the earth right now

This 3-foot diameter stone globe at the entrance to the Pavilion, with the continents and other landmasses engraved on its face, is oriented so that light and shadow on the globe match the actual conditions on earth. On a sunny day you can see exactly where on the Earth the Sun is shining at that moment. As the Sun moves across our sky, you can see how the lighting on the Earth changes over the course of the day.
