1. Why did you do this?Check it out here and don't forget to zoom to the max
Because we couldn't think of a better way to commemorate the first lunar landing, which occurred on July 20, 1969, than to give our users an opportunity to surf around the lunar surface themselves.
2. Why can't I see the surface in more detail?
Google Moon only has as much data as NASA was able to give us, so there are limitations (for now) on how close to the surface we can zoom.
Google Moon goes to Lunar landing sites
