Were you to drive on Maine's Interstate 295 through Yarmouth, it would be next to impossible to miss Eartha.
Eartha, housed in a three-story glass gallery at DeLorme Headquarters, is the world's largest rotating/revolving globe. Eartha was designed by CEO David DeLorme and successfully completed two years later in 1998. It won its Guinness Book record the next year, outshining the previous record holders in both Italy and Massachusetts.
Just over 41 feet in diameter, the enormous structure was designed as a scale model. With the scale of 1:1,000,000 or approximately one inch equaling 16 miles, California is a mere three and a half feet tall on Eartha.
Just like Earth, Eartha is tilted at 23.5 degrees. It's rotation is powered by two electric-powered motors and takes about 18 minutes to complete a cycle.
