Chandrayaan-3 Lander Photographed by NASA Spacecraft

NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) recently took a photograph of Vikram lander of Chandrayaan-3 mission of India. Vikram lander is the first spacecraft to successfully land near the lunar South Pole.

According to NASA, the image of Vikram lander was taken by the LRO on August 27, four days after its historic landing on the moon.

Sharing the image on social media platform X, the space agency wrote, “LRO spacecraft recently imaged the Chandrayaan-3 lander on the Moon’s surface.”

According to NASA, the LRO camera acquired an oblique view (42-degree slew angle) of the lander four days later. The bright halo around the vehicle resulted from the rocket plume interacting with the fine-grained regolith (soil).
