Bring the light of the moon into your room, no matter what the weather is like outside.
We've rounded up some of the best deals on moon lamps, allowing you to score up to 30% off as you look for the best bargain gifts for your astronomy lover. These lamps are all tabletop size and have flexible lighting conditions, allowing you to decorate a child's bedroom as a nightlight, or adorn a living room to host a colorful party.
The star deal of the moon lamp series is the VGAzer Moon Lamp, which is just $71.99 at Amazon and an incredible 20% off. Its best feature is the levitation, accomplished by hidden magnets and sure to be a great party trick for guests or during present-opening. It even spins!
The moon hovers like magic above an elegant faux hardwood stand, and can light up in any way you choose, whether it be a soft white to set an evening tone or a warm yellow to light up the area. Be sure to act fast to get this deal while it's in stock; otherwise, more space decor at a bargain basement price is available at our Space.com Black Friday deals page.
The VGAzer Moon Lamp is just 6 inches (15 cm) across and a similarly compact 10 inches (25 centimeters) high, perfect for a bedroom or a small apartment. Its textured surface comes courtesy of 3D printing, based on a high-resolution scan of the actual moon.
A one-touch on/off switch will make it easy to bring the light of the moon into your area, or you can try out different moods by clicking the power button. Just like your phone, you can use wireless charging to keep power supplies high when you need them the most. As the advertisers joke for Game of Thrones fans, the night is dark and full of terrors. (Long live the Lord of Light!)
