July 20, 1969 Apollo 11, commanded by Neil Armstrong, piloted by Edwin Aldrin and Michael Collins made the first human landing on the moon.

To commemorate the occassion Google has a graphic on their main page as they often do on particular days of note. However, today, if you click on the Google icon you're taken to Google Moon, a Google Maps style interface showing a satellite view of the moon with the six Apollo mission landing sites marked.

Just like on Google Maps, you can zoom in and out on the Google Moon images. Be sure to zoom in to the closest level.

(Thanks to my Dad, for pointing this out.)
