Early version

The first version of Google Moon only included low-resolution satellite imagery of the entire Moon, and when zoomed in too close, a Swiss cheese pattern would appear

Current version

The current version of Google Moon has three modes

Apollo mode

Apollo provides information about each of the Apollo missions, including placemarks, maps, images, video, and Street View-style panoramas, all provided by NASA

Visible mode

This mode provides the satellite imagery for the Moon, provided by the Clementine mission


This shows a false color rendering of the Moon's elevation


A Charts layer is also available This shows Apollo-era geologic and topographic charts for certain areas of the Moon's surface

Moon View in Google Earth

Google Earth 5 includes a separate globe of the moon, starting on July 20, 2009 to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing The maps are of a much higher resolution than those on the browser version of Google Moon and it also includes 3D renderings of the Moon terrain
