India’s second moon exploration mission #Chandrayaan2 has beamed back the first images taken from the moon’s orbit, the Indian Space Research Organisation announced in a tweet Thursday. The image was captured by #Chandrayaan2 at an altitude of 2650 kilometres from the moon’s surface on 21 August. Two of the most visible features in the frame are the Mare Orientale basin and the Apollo craters.
