ISRO Releases First Photo of Moon Captured by Chandrayaan-2

Chandrayaan-2 on Thursday, 22 August, released its first photo of the moon captured by the Vikram Lander. The photo was published on ISRO’s Twitter handle. It has been taken at a height of about 2,650 km from the lunar surface on Wednesday.

After Chandrayaan-2 was placed in lunar orbit, ISRO Chairman K Sivan said that the next major event will happen on 2 September when the lander will be separated from the orbiter. On 3 September, there will be a small maneuver for about 3 seconds to ensure that the systems of the lander are running normally.
