Although it’s not recommended to promise the moon to any woman, you can now at least commit to giving her a reasonable facsimile. Specifically, you can present her with a realistically-lunar nightlight for company.
Although it’s not a baseball, it’s resilient enough to survive the occasional fall. The plastic it’s made from is actually biodegradable and produced from renewable sources, which is a particularly nice touch. This also complements its natural look; the manufacturer has gone to great trouble making sure that it resembles the actual moon as we see it.
The 3D-printing manufacturing process used results in a finish which looks highly realistic, at least when it’s turned on, and makes it a nice addition to any decor. The color can be set to either pure white or a warmer yellow, although for some reason there’s no “blood moon” option.
One drawback to this product is that the switch that controls the color-and-brightness is tiny and located right next to the power port. With a charging time of two hours, which allows it to run for about twelve, this can be inconvenient for continuous use as a ornament. While charging, the light changes to a somewhat un-lunar blue. A turn-off timer would also have been nice.
This awkward positioning of the switch, along with its durable yet lightweight construction and internal battery, does, however, allow you to carry it with you as a lantern. The light it emits isn’t terribly bright even on the highest setting, but it should be able to get you safely to the bathroom and back. You could even use it as a cute lamp at a night picnic or an unusual decoration for your Christmas tree.
These attractive nightlights range from 3½ to 7 inches in diameter, with the price climbing pretty steeply as you go larger. If you’re thinking of buying one of these, it’s definitely recommended that you actually go find a tape measure and see how small this actually is. The included stand does give it some extra height, but this is definitely not the size of a proper desk lamp.
