Search The Moon With Google Earth For Moon

Today is the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11th mission where man landed on the moon. To celebrate the anniversary, Google announced the launch of Moon in Google Earth. You can now use Google Earth to explore, fly around and search the moon.

Here is the video blog post explaining this announcement:

The Google LatLong Blog has details on many of the features of Google Moon.

There are some complaints that Google does not have a special logo up for the day, like Bing, YouTube and my blog. To see those logos, go to the Search Engine Roundtable.

Postscript: At 3:30pm EST today, Google has updated their home page to make a Google Doodle for the special day. Here is a picture:

Also, Google’s Street View Man is dressed in a space suit today:

    WOW! This is AWESOME! I wish I had this when I was a kid learning about space and the moon…this should be a hit for Science teachers and students.

    This looks really good and I’m definitely going to have a look at the moon. This will definitely be good for schools. Thanks for the information.
