More Google Astronomy

On the heels of the announcement last month, Google has now come out with Google Moon.

This had been previously available in a limited fashion, showing the Apollo landing areas. However, if you used the zoom function and zoomed all the way in, you got to see the moon as cheese. 🙂

This new version, however, is serious. They have used more actual imagery of the moon, and includes lunar charts as well.

As of now, they are only showing a small area of the moon, but it’s hoped that they will expand to encompass the entire surface of our natural satellite.

So head on over there and explore the moon and find out where twelve humans took the first steps on another world.
