Correction: Images that the Arizona State University provides.

You are correct though about Earth based telescopes. To get the same resolution as the LROC gives us from Lunar orbit, one would need a telescope who's primary mirror would be about 5 football fields wide.

No telescope on Earth can show that to you...if you feel otherwise...point the way.

You're right. I'm wrong. Bad Astronomy. Did not read all the details. Apparently the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter flew near the moon and took many pictures. I like this one:

Was corrected by this article from Discover Magazine as well. Useful info.
