All images taken by Chandrayaan 2!



In the first week of August, Chandrayaan-2 sent first pictures of Earth as viewed in space as it was moving away from the planet.

In a series , Isro shared the Earth's pictures clicked by LI4 Camera of Chandrayaan-2's Vikram lander on August 3, 2019.

The pictures show the Earth in different hues.
Chandrayaan has sent 5 images of Earth from different altitude.

5th image of Earth from the altitude of 5000 km



On August 22, Isro announced on Twitter that Chandrayaan-2 shot an image of the Moon from a altitude of over 2,000 km as it flies around the satellite, preparing to land a rover on the lunar surface.



The image was shot on August 21 and was taken from a height of 2,650 km, Isro said.
In the photo, Isro highlighted two significant lunar landmarks -- the Apollo crater and the Mare Orientale basin.

Chandrayaan has released total 4 images of moon from the altitude of 4375 km

Chandrayaan-2 reached the Moon on August 20, when it entered the lunar orbit. On August 21, Chandrayaan-2 performed a manoeuvre to lower its orbit around the Moon.

The spacecraft will perform several such manoeuvres over the next two weeks to bring itself closer and closer to the Moon.

The Chandrayaan-2 mission's D-Day is September 2, when the lander Vikram will separate from the spacecraft and get into a lunar orbit of its own.
