Past Post: Space Needle In Galaxy Gold

They called it “Galaxy Gold.” This was the original color of the space needle pagoda in 1962 when it opened for the World’s Fair. The garish orange hue was brought back in 2002 for the month of April to celebrate the 40th anniversary.

  1. I kind of like the garish orange. Caveat, however: I think the whole Space Needle needs to be orange, not just the top, otherwise it looks just plain silly!

    I love it in orange. I feel like other countries use bolder colors like these more than we do here. If you travel to many developing nations you see a lot of oranges, blues and greens. Its very retro, very 60′s.

    The Orange on the Needle is very fitting for the 1960′s and as much as I appreciate the color, I am glad we have toned it down. Some people love to hate the needle and the orange certainly would not help! hehe.

    I love the garish. Nothing is fun without some bright gaudy color attached to it.

  4. Holly says:

    I vote for the “galaxy gold” — kind of enhances the whole flying saucer look.

  5. Brian Lutz says:

    It fit back in its day, but that color is about 25 years past the sell-by date now.

  6. Cliffe says:

    I’d be in favor of bringing it back permanently if the color was a little less saturated. As is, it reminds me a little of those old Houston Astro’s uniforms.

    I like the Galaxy Gold!! I was given a dried piece of the paint as a child from my dad who was one the the two painters that painted it in 1962.

  16. Sebby says:

    I think it is a great color for the 60′s but now it would look just plain retarded.

  17. I nearly spilled my espresso soon after seeing th is work. Wow!

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhh……can’t we have a bit of color to brighten our gray skies?
    At first, I didn’t think I’d like it but it is interesting and changes depending on the sky color or the sun.
    I say let’s keep it that way for a few years.
