Aristarchus Crater -- incredible zoom capability

Aristarchus Crater, from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter

I just found this site, where you can zoom in to boulder resolution  on the surface of the Moon.  It's almost like being there!  Currently on page 6 is a view of the Apollo 17 landing site, entitled "Skimming the Moon".
