Google Moon

No April Fool’s: Google Moon is like Google Maps, except it covers the moon and not the earth. Google says, “In honor of the first manned Moon landing, which took place on July 20, 1969, we’ve added some NASA imagery to the Google Maps interface to help you pay your own visit to our celestial neighbor. Happy lunar surfing.”
Note that when you zoom in really close, the moon surface starts turning into swiss cheese (OK, maybe it is a late April Fool’s...)

Oh yeah, and there’s a special Google logo too...

Some more on the background of how this tool got created can be found at the official Google Blog.
