SEATTLE (AP) — As Seattle Center celebrates the 50th anniversary of the World’s Fair starting this Saturday, April 21, the Space Needle is getting an anniversary paint job.

City officials say the roof of the needle will be painted “galaxy gold” this week. The color is more orange than gold, however, so the change should be pretty noticeable in the Seattle skyline.

The new paint job is part of this week’s kick-off for the celebration of Seattle Center’s Golden Anniversary.
