Google Maps the Moon

Filed under: — Different River @ 12:13 pm

In honor of the 36th anniversary of the first moon landing, on July 20, 1969, Google Maps has added some moon data to the Google Maps interface, so you can now zoom, pan, and otherwise explore the surface of the moon. The sites of the moon landings are marked.

Now, the regular Google Maps allows you to look at either a street map or a satellite image of an area, but Google Moon has only images. Wonder why… ;-)
