This globe is comprised of a lunar sphere and a terrestrial sphere. On the lunar sphere, two great circles, the lunar equator, and the lunar prime meridian, are drawn, but these are not graduated. The invention of the Selenographia is a unique event in the history of globe and instrument making and it is constructed in such a way as to reproduce the motion of the Moon, including wobbling with respect to the Earth. Only one side is illustrated, the other is blank, since we only ever see one side of the Moon from Earth.
