LRO - First light.

We should soon see our first views of the Apollo landing sites after many years. The first shots will be great, but the orbiter is still adjusting it's orbit to it's final low orbit. They will just get better.
Today the first closeup look a the moon from the LRO are in. Pretty darn cool (I think I just repeat myself all the time on this blog, but yeah.... way cool fantastic stuff!).

Here is one of them, it's about .87 miles across - and will get better as the spacecraft gets lower.
