Google Moon Update (minus the cheese)
- Higher Resolution Images
- Moon 'Walk' View
- No Cheese (was on max zoom - Wallace & Gromit ate it all?)
Visible - A mosaic of images taken by the Clementine mission. This is a black-and-white version of what you would see if you were in orbit around the moon. This composite imagery was prepared by the USGS.
Elevation - A lunar terrain map generated by the USGS in conjunction with the The Unified Lunar Control Network 2005, and shaded using an airbrushed shaded relief map. This map is colour-coded by altitude, so you can use the colour key at the lower left to estimate elevations.
Apollo - A collection of place marks that tell the story of the Apollo missions that landed on the moon. This includes stories, quotes, images, panoramas, audio clips, and links to videos of the astronauts' adventures on the lunar surface.
Charts - A collection of geological and topographic charts of various regions of the moon.
