The small Tesla Coil produces an alternating high voltage potential which attracts or repels free electrons. When the electrons collide with the gaseous atoms and molecules inside the globe, the gas particles are ionized creating even more electrons, as well as positive ions. A plasma is formed. When electrons return to the ionized gas, light is produced. Touching the globe with your finger provides a ground, an additional source or 'sink' of electrons. You can also observe Super! Wow! Neat!® effects by moving a fluorescent tube or neon light near the plasma globe. They will light up in your hands! Runs on standard North American line current, 110 volts 60 Hz
