The recently launched Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter sent back its first images of a bunch of the moon landing sites and the results are phenomenal. The remains of the moon missions are visible most easily if you look for the shadows cast by the decent stages that were left on the moon. There are versions with arrows over at NASA’s mission page. These photos are only the start; as the orbiter reaches its final altitude of just 30 miles above the surface the detail of the images are going to be increased two to three fold.
