Google Moon

Today’s FamilyFirst site is short and sweet in its description. That’s because you don’t want to READ about it, you want to go check it out for yourself!
The site is Google Moon. It’s a clickable, zoomable, blast of a website that will allow you to virtually tour the moon’s surface. Here’s how they describe themselves:

On July 20, 1969, man first landed on the Moon. A few decades later, we’re pleased to cut you in on the action. Google Moon is an extension of Google Maps and Google Earth that, courtesy of NASA imagery (thanks, guys!), enables you to surf the Moon’s surface and check out the exact spots that the Apollo astronauts made their landings.

So explore the landing areas of the six moon landings. Also, not the conspicuous absence of Apollo 13. And finally, don’t forget to zoom in as close as you can for an astoundingly detailed view of the very surface of the moon!
