Whoopie! There's Apollo 12 site.

If Pete Conrad was still alive, I'm sure that is probably what he would say. His words when he was the 3rd person to step on the moon was "That may have been one small step for Neil, but it's a long one for me!"
The LRO has recently sent back some photos of the Apollo 12 site where Pete Conrad and Alan Bean explored. They landed next to the Surveyor 3 spacecraft which is also easily seen in this photo. The orbiter still has few more weeks before it reaches it's final low orbit, so hopefully we'll see even more details of the Apollo sites coming up.
