The Project Apollo Archives

The archives are a collection of digital images from the lunar landing program, and in particular there are some Apollo 11 photographs that are absolutely amazing. The Apollo Image Gallery is temporarily located here:

There's a link on that page that says 'Page 2 of the Apollo 11 section.' That takes you to a full page of images from the Apollo 11 mission, and they are just magnificent. Clicking the link to a photgraph displays a thumbnail, and if you click on the thumbnail (and have a broadband connection), a full-size image will download, and each one is breathtakingly detailed.

I wasn't kidding when I said 'breathtaking.' Some of the photos are so beautiful that time stops when you look at them.
