New images of the Apollo landing sites

Too cool: NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has imaged the Apollo moon landing sites. You can see the lunar module, its shadow, and the scientific instrument packages.

What really impresses me are the foot paths. See that smear? That's the path of Al Shepard and Ed Mitchell, when they walked on the moon. I wonder how long those paths will last.
