Making a desktop clock out of a 24-hour clock movement, a globe, and an LED. Help me design it within!

I have purchased the 24-hour high-torque movement
Most importantly, I need to buy the globe, but I can't tell from online descriptions how heavy different globes are. Can you recommend a globe that I can, using hot glue or something similar, attach to this movement?
Less importantly, roughly 50% of the earth is hit by sunlight, so I need a battery-powered LED device that will hit 50% of the globe, and is able to change elevation relative to the globe as the seasons change. Do you have any suggestions for how to create this?
