Google Moon – Lunar Landing Sites

This is nicely tied to the upcoming moon rover that will be catching satellite imagery and elevations (along with other sensors) of the moon. I can’t wait to be able to play with lunar data 🙂

“In honor of the first manned Moon landing, which took place on July 20, 1969, we’ve added some NASA imagery to the Google Maps interface to help you pay your own visit to our celestial neighbor. Happy lunar surfing.”
