Space Needle Makeover

Jeff Wright and his daughter Mauren, 15, paint the sloped surface of the Space Needle its original 1962 color, "Galaxy Gold," Tuesday in Seattle. Wright is chairman of the Space Needle LLC and the son of Howard S. Wright, the builder of the iconic structure. Crews will continue to paint the Space Needle when weather permits for the next two days, and the color will remain throughout the summer to celebrate its 50th anniversary.(AP Photo/The Seattle Times, Bettina Hansen)

Question: Have you visited the Space Needle? Would you describe your experience for those of us who haven't?
