PEORIA, Ill.– The Dome Planetarium held its Wine and Cheese Under the Stars event Friday. Celebrating the anniversary of the Apollo missions and the moon landing.

“We’re always looking for different themes to try and attract people back who may have come before” Planetarium Educator Nick Rae told WMBD, “So the perfect theme was to do a show celebrating the Apollo 11 mission.”
