Monday was the last chance for fans to get one final look inside the Astrodome before it undergoes major renovations.

25,000 passes were handed out for people to get a look for the Domecoming party celebrating the 53rd anniversary of the "8th Wonder of the World."

Fans took away decades of memories as the landmark is about to get a $105 million overhaul.

"Nobody could hit that ceiling, even the best hitters would try to send the ball up and hit that ceiling, they couldn't," said Astros photographer Cecil Burdick.

The ground level of the dome will be raised for parking and upper level will be remade to host events. The astrodome is expected to reopen in 2020.
