Eartha: World's Largest Rotating Globe

Building is closed due to Covid-19, and the globe is turned off and not rotating, but you can still view it through window.

Eartha: World's Largest Rotating Globe

Eartha the Globe has been fixed and is rotating nicely. There are displays about geocaching and the globe's creation/refurbishment. As an added bonus, there are very nice public bathrooms available. Be sure to stop by even if its after hours, since the globe can be seen through the glass wall of the lobby.

Eartha: World's Largest Rotating Globe

Eartha: World's Largest Rotating Globe was having her engine tuned and surface refreshed when we visited so she was actually more like The Day the Earth Stood Still. The DeLorme people say her work will be finished by winter 2011/2012, so until then she doesn't rotate. Still a fun fun sight to see and it's free, with a nice gift shop to boot.

Eartha: World's Largest Rotating Globe

Just want to let people know that Eartha is "under the weather" [December, 2008] There are several panels off, and the globe is NOT rotating. DeLorme employee thought it may be fixed "in a few months." Make sure you call ahead.
