The Procyon

I always look forward to seeing images of "new" (to my collection at least!) Astrojet vehicles. Today marks my debut of the Procyon, named after the brightest star in the constellation Canis Minor. Seen in this June 1958 shot, this mother son duo seem mighty proud to be riding aboard it.

Some of the other ones in my collection include The Sirius:

The Canopus:

The Capella:

The Antares:

The Altair:

The Arcturus:

I'm sure if I was a bit more motivated this morning, I could zoom in on some of my other images and squeeze out a few more vehicles, but for now, this will have to suffice!

Follow my Daveland updates on Twitter and view my most recent photos on Flickr. See more vintage & current Disneyland Astrojet/Astro Orbiter photos from my collection on my main website.

I love stuff like this. Visual confirmation of all the various names of vehicles on the Astro-jets, Jungle Cruise boats, Storybook Land Canal Boats, etc. Perhaps later when you get the others, you could squeeze out Castor, Regulus, Rigel, Spica and Vega.

Actually in the Altair image you can sort of see the name "Castor". Thanks, Dave!
