The "sun" is lighted with an ultra-bright 1000-hour light bulb inside a yellow orb to shine onto the planets as they orbit around it. The central tower and the planetary support rods are black so that they "disappear" in a darkened room for a spectacular effect. Base features planetary longitude marks so the planets can be set up to their correct positions. Plus, the unique stardome (included) converts the unit into a planetarium. Powered by four C batteries (not included) or A/C adapter (not included).

1. as you can see in other comments, the planets are moving at the same rate (which is WRONG!!!)
2. as you can see in other comments, the colors of the planets do NOT correspond to the reality (they SHOULD look like we are used to)
3. neither the batteries, nor the adapter are included, so you SHOULD BUY them.
4. the "sun" does NOT close well, so its upper part falls all the time.
5. the "stardome" that is supposed to "convert the unit to a planetarium" does not really do that because you can hardly see the stars (and especially their names on the ceiling).
so for my 4 years old boy, who just learned the planets and knows they go around the sun, it's interesting, but it is NOT educational at all since it has too many wrong things.
Still haven't figured out why it is motorized. It is essentially a static display that a motor moves in a circle. Not helpful or all that educational. But my 7 year old is having fun destroying the arms and planets.....
