"Like many kids of the '60s, I was a big fan of Lost In Space, especially the first season. I always wondered where they filmed the crash site sequence, and how. After working at 20th Century Fox for many years, I was able to track down call sheets and camera reports, and learned that the exterior miniature work was shot at Red Rock Canyon, north of Los Angeles--and it was shot in color, despite the pilot being in black-and-white. Some friends and I spent a day trying to scout out the exact location of the crash site, with the famous pinnacle the Jupiter 2 flew past on it's ill-fated landing. We found it! Here is video evidence, nearly, over 40 years later, of the pinnacle.
A four foot miniature was used for filming. I have a two foot miniature with me for the filming, and you can see that it's not nearly as big as the four foot miniature appears on the final footage.
I don't own the footage from the original show or the music; I'm using it only to enhance the experience. Notice the STEREO unused end title music!"

" Edwin Rivera I had worked at 20th Century Fox and a friend helped me find their camera logs from the special effects unit. It said that they had shot at Red Rock Canyon. So we went up there one weekend and we figured it had to be fairly close to the roadways because they had to lug all the equipment around. It took all afternoon but we eventually found the spot. And it was about a 15-minute walk from the main parking lot."
I liked that show when I was young, it was the only TV show I watched after school lol...
I got it on dvd . That's amazing that must be 45 years since they did that filming there of the Jupiter 2 crash landing or maybe even more than that ? They did very well to find it.
I thought it crashed on a Hollywood backlot, or sometimes a soundstage.
Don't think so , the second unit would have gone out looking for cool natural places to film for the project this allows the second unit director usually (but not always) to shoot the footage that doesn't involve the principals. This allows the film to proceed at several locations this is obviously one of them they found the log books and then the site . Amazing .
I believe some of the Chariot scenes may have been filmed at Red Rock. They drove through the desert for quite a while in some episodes.
The Chariot was a Snow Cat with the body replaced.
Yes that is a snowcat here is an interesting video. Trona Pinnacles. Original footage was shot here in 1964.
I watched lost in space too......not sure where this chucklehead david ice got it from.
I didn't hear him mention it in the video.
Moebius Jupiter 2 – January 2017
Cherry Hill, New Jersey
Mark made Moebius’ 1/35 scale Jupiter 2 from the 1960s television show Lost in Space look out of this world with working hatches, extended wall beams, and interior as well as exterior lighting. He made the landing gear removable to allow static and in-flight poses for the model.
Wow that's really cool. I looked them up you can get kits for around $150 and a lighting kit for $190. Not sure how hard they would be to make ?
Found this also its just a toy but looks pretty good. Makes noises and sounds. It says Trendmasters Jupiter 2 sells for between $500 and $1000 dollars to collectors.
Things can always be worse.
Yes they can be.......there would be people who believe this is real......
That was one of the creatures Dr. Smith released from the Keeper's zoo-ship...
The Celestial Department Store was even better than replicators, you could literally order anything from anywhere..............for a price...
Here's the full episode...
Verda was nice. She came from the Celestial Department Store . Turned human after awhile and ran off with IDAK.
