The ball has a speed motor which is controlled by the DJ or lighting technician who changes the speed of this rotating ball. There can be more than one spot light focusing on the ball. Also, the size of this disco ball light varies. The random flashes of light generated by a mirrored disco ball, creates an amazing, dynamic background.
