Orange Ya Glad The Space Needle’s Not Orange, Anymore?

The Space Chameleon, er, Needle changes color again. We noticed workers high up there today making the change while we were visiting some pups in South lake Union.

The top of the Needle has been orange for the last six months. For the first time ever, the Needle will be sporting a design from a contest winner. Take a look at the new, green-theme.

For us Seattleites, it’s a whole lotta color goin’ on. The Space Needle has been basic white up top since its earliest days 50 years ago. What do you think of the Needle’s new ‘do?

Orange Space Needle Catching Everybody’s Eye — Even Our Dogs!

Yesterday, we wrote about our world-famous Seattle landmark, the Space Needle.

For those of you who don’t live around here, the Needle is orange on top. That may not seem like a big deal to you. It’s just that we’re used to seeing it white.

But orange on top was the Needle’s original look once upon a time. So, the Needle got a makeover last week in honor of it’s 50th anniversary.

The new look is certainly catching the eye of Bella and Niko, the two beautiful Akitas who live close by that we often walk around the Space Needle.

They haven’t shared their opinion (with me, at least) about the Needle’s new “Crayola” shade. But when they do, I’ll pass it along right here!

We just wanted to take a sec this morning to congratulate the Space Needle on 50 years of being … uber cool!

There was a lot of hoopla over the weekend, and the Needle has been noticeably orange on top since last week. The Space Needle folks decided to return the landmark to it’s 1962 paint job for the commemoration.

Congrats on 50 years!
