These are formidable eyes in the sky, apparently. NASA official Michael Moore said that if the Hubble Space Telescope were pointed at the surface of the Earth instead of at outer space, “you could see a dime sitting on top of the Washington Monument.”

So why can't the point the Hubble at the moon and show us the landing sites? Yes I know there are some pictures out there but they aren't very good.
