Orbit is the official Mascot for the Houston Astros from 1990 to 1999 until his replacement in 2000.
Houston Astros mascot Orbit is a lime-green extraterrestrial in an Astros jersey with antennas that expand into baseballs. From the 1990s through the 1999 seasons, Orbit served as the team’s mascot. In the 2000 season, with the team’s relocation from the Astrodome to Enron Field, Junction Jack served as the new mascot.
Astros’ new design for their 2013 debut in the American League was unveiled on November 2, 2012, and Orbit was once again in attendance to celebrate. The name Orbit is a tribute to Houston’s ties to NASA and its moniker, Space City.
