The perfect gift for space lovers! Three beautiful 1000 piece round puzzles of our Sun, Earth and Moon!
This stunning puzzle captures our nearest star in a way you simply cannot see without the help of space-age technologies. And what's more, we see it here at a moment of unimaginable intensity. The light flares across this image are the sun preparing to erupt with a “coronal mass ejection,” during which a tremendous amount of plasma explodes from the sun’s surface.This plasma and the accompanying magnetic field travel 1,350 miles per second. In less than twenty hours after one of these cataclysmic events, the residue reaches earth and is absorbed by our atmosphere, creating one of the most beautiful phenomena in nature — the northern lights.
The Earth puzzle depicts night setting over the Atlantic from an altitude of 438 miles. The lights in the cities of Africa and Europe glimmer, and the sun is shining on the Americas in this awe-inspiringly detailed image from the Terra satellite! The Terra satellite orbits earth once a day, and has been gathering data and taking pictures for more than 20 years. From many days of data, a team of scientists and graphic artists painstakingly spliced and layered the satellite’s imagery together to create this giant single image, ensuring that every square inch — the water, the land, the clouds, the snow — is a clear and precise depiction of our beautiful planet."
The Moon puzzle shows the full moon as intensely and clearly as when you were a kid in your backyard on a summer night with a telescope. The dark areas seen across the surface are vast stretches of lava rock that create a stark contrast against one of the moon’s most well-known characteristics — craters. These massive pits were created by impacts with asteroids and meteors over the last few billion years and usually range from 10 to 30 miles across. Despite their size, in this puzzle they’re shown with such detail and clarity that it makes the whole moon feel like it’s so close that it's just a ball you could pick up and throw with one hand.
