ISRO released videos from the Vikram lander of Chandrayaan 3, showing the craters on the Moon’s surface along with the Earth visible in the background. Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) unveiled the video recorded by the lander on Friday. A video was filmed by the Lander Position Detection Camera (LPDC) on August 15 while connected to the Propulsion Module, providing a clear view of the Moon’s craters. Another video, captured by the Lander Imager (LI) Camera-1, presents a glimpse of Earth in a small frame.

Follow the Chandrayaan 3 live updates. In the first video, recorded on Indian Independence Day, the dark side of the Moon is visible where the lander will attempt a soft touchdown on August 23.

In the second video, the Earth can be seen alongside the Moon in the background. This video was captured by ISRO on Thursday, immediately after successfully detaching the Lander Module and Propulsion Module. The scenes also show distant impact craters on the Moon, including Fabry, Giordano Bruno, and Harkebein J. These visuals are from the set of images released by the Indian Space Agency as part of the Chandrayaan 3 mission. The Indian lunar spacecraft captured its first images of the Moon as it entered the lunar orbit.

The Vikram lander contains eight sensors:

  1. Laser Retroreflector and Accelerometer Package (LIRAP)
  2. Ka-band Radar Altimeter (KaRA)
  3. Lander Position Detection Camera (LPDC)
  4. LHDC (Lander Hazard Detection and Avoidance Camera)
  5. Laser Altimeter (LASA)
  6. Laser Doppler Velocimeter (LDV)
  7. Lander Horizontal Velocity Camera (LHVC)
  8. Microstar Sensor
  9. Inclinometer and Touchdown Sensor

Russia’s Luna-25 automated station, flying in the spherical lunar orbit, has also captured images of the Moon’s surface using TV cameras from the STS-LS complex. The image shows the southern polar crater Zimman behind the Moon. According to the State Space Corporation Roscosmos, the crater’s coordinates correspond to 75 degrees south latitude and 135 degrees west longitude.

It is mentioned that the hidden crater Zeeman from Earth – a unique object on the Moon’s surface – is of great interest to researchers. The height of the surrounding shaft relative to the flat surface of the Moon reaches up to 8 kilometers.
