This is a pretty cool likeness of the moon, however, not as good as the photos presented for the item.
It s more like molded grey puffy-looking textured hard plastic on its face/flat back for hanging. The lighting is more like a soft glow which does illuminate a dark medium sized bedroom bright enough for getting ready for bed. It is placed high on the wall near to the ceiling across from the bed. I took the photo with the moon fully lit before hanging.
As far as the reviewer whom had difficulty with batteries draining too quickly, I thankfully haven t had that experience thus far. The light doesn t go on unless I turn it on with the remote, so I m not sure what I did to disable the reviewers mentioned sensor or maybe mine doesn t work. I have the switch on the back of the unit on and then just use the remote which has 2 buttons to either turn on and through the moon phases to off manually with one button and automatically with the other button without any problem and have used it for about 2 weeks. I am using rechargeable batteries which may make the difference as well as it being on for only a little while before bed. Very soothing especially combined with the Cloud B Twilight Constellation Night Light (We have the Sea Turtle) which sits on the side of the bed.
The price is also reasonable for a seemingly good quality unit.
If any issues come up, I ll update.
Enjoy and God Bless!
