<p>  The Indian spacecraft Chandrayan-2 <u> </u>  is orbiting the moon and has incredible views as it waits to try to make history. </p>
<p>  spacecraft <u> arrived in moon orbit </u> on 19 August (20 August local time in control of the mission of <u> Indian Space Research Organization </u>) and is currently conducting a series of maneuvers to adjust this orbit in preparation for the landing attempt in less than two weeks. </p>
<p>  While doing so, the spacecraft captures stunning images of the lunar surface of the moon, including a set made on August 23 of the vehicle's terrain camera 2. These images include one showing the lunar north pole, including Plaskett, Rozhdestvenskiy , Hermite, Sommerfeld and Kirkwood cr </p>

Chandrayan-2 is orbiting between the poles of the moon. In about a week, the orbit will separate from the rest of the mission and continue this way for the next year or so. The probe was modeled on the Chandrayaan-1

spacecraft in India which carried the instrument confirming the presence of water ice in craters near the lunar poles.
