Well, tomorrow is the 40th anniversary for the first man on the moon. Google decided to make the moon as Earth.
Should be interesting. :)

Any triforce? :P

Nope no triforce :-). It went live to correspond with lunar landing at 20:17 UTC 40 years ago. (via: twitter.com/googlemaps/status/ ...). By the way, there was a Doodle in 2005 to for the first man on the moon.

No triforce doodle, but at least they put E.T. in there!

(Warning: this is a joke. While I didn't photoshop this, I simply searched for any interesting pattern at all, which is pretty much available in any sufficiently complex picture!)
