  • Chandrayaan-2 lowers course around the Moon

"Mare Orientale basin and Apollo craters are identified in the picture", tweeted ISRO.

The Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft has performed an orbit maneuver around the Moon bringing it closer to the satellite, Indian media reports have said. It lasted around 20 minutes. After the fourth manoeuvre, its orbit would become circular, according to the ISRO.

The latest update said, "All spacecraft parameters are normal".

Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on August 21 said it compressed the current elliptical orbit to 4,412 km at the far end from the moon. The duration of manoeuvre was 1738 seconds.
