Thanks to Google's tribute to the Apollo landings, I've been able to create an add-on for the moon that illustrates all the apollo landings.

Update 1/23/06:

Thanks to the work of Michael Stennecken, pointed out by spectrel, I have been able to add the exact coordinates of the landings. Thanks, Michael and spectrel!

Note that Apollo 13 didn't land because an explosion forced its early return (I didn't forget it.) The icons are linked to NASA's history pages, and the descriptions are "borrowed" from those pages.
