Chandrayaan 2 is moving towards the moon and is now just 2650 km away from it. Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has released some more pictures from moon’s inside orbit.
Consistently making its way towards the moon, India’s second orbiter in Lunar probing history is expected to reach the unventured south pole region in the next 10 days.
Chandrayaan 2 successfully entered the lunar orbit of the moon on Tuesday, August 20.
At an altitude of 4375 from the Moon, a Terrain Mapping Camera 2 (TMC-2) captured images of the Moon’s craters on Friday, August 23.
While settling down in the moon’s lunar orbit the satellite captured pictures of the moon for us.
