This desk decoration claims to hold a replica of the universe inside its smooth glass exterior.

Appropriately titled 'The Universe in a Sphere,' the object looks like a paper weight and comes with different stands -- some of which light up and others that are solid in color. The glass ball is said to contain a replica of Laniakea -- which is the name of the supercluster of galaxies that the Milky Way is a part of. Each lasered dot in the sphere represents an entire galaxy which likely contains billions of stars, much like the Milky Way does.

This unique desk decoration would be an excellent gift for individuals who enjoy or study astrology.
