The Lunar Reconaissance Orbiter's view of the Apollo-11 landing site. That little dark dash in the centre of the picture is the shadow cast by the Lunar Landing Module descent stage, which remained on the Moon. You can clearly see next to it the "crater the size of a football field" that they had to avoid when landing. Only about 30 metres across, but a pardonable exaggeration under the circumstances.
More pictures of other Apollo landing sites are at the NASA LRO page.
