What We Offer
Displaying our Earth as it is viewed from space, EarthBalls are the original photorealistic world globes, and still the most visually authentic globes available on the planet.
We offer both small and giant EarthBalls. The small EarthBalls come in both 16-inch diameter and 1-meter diameter sizes. These EarthBalls are available for retail or wholesale purchase. See the Small EarthBall links above and to your left.
We also produce giant EarthBalls in a variety of sizes, with a variety of optional features. These museum quality globes are available for purchase or rent. We build globes for permanent installation and for temporary/mobile displays.
Who We Are
Orbis World Globes is the original creator of photorealistic EarthBalls and was founded in 1985 by Eric J Morris. Inspired by the early photographs of the whole Earth taken by Apollo astronauts, our mission has been to recreate and share the astronaut’s view of Earth from space, so that all humans have an opportunity to see and appreciate the extraordinary beauty of our home planet. Orbis World Globes has been providing the world with visually authentic inflatable globes for 30 years.
Orbis gratefully acknowledges the generous assistance of NASA in providing the imagery and technical support that make EarthBalls possible.
How We Work
Orbis sells our small EarthBalls retail on this website and wholesale to stores around the planet. See the Small EarthBall links to your left for more information.
We create our giant EarthBalls one at a time, to the customer’s specifications. These custom globes are designed as permanent installations or temporary/mobile displays.
We also stock a rental fleet of giant EarthBalls, available for your trade show, conference, parade, festival or special event.
