ISRO releases first set of earth pictures captured by Chandrayaan-2

@isro
Space agency ISRO today released the first set of pictures of the earth, captured by Chandrayaan 2, the country's second Moon mission launched a fortnight ago.

The pictures were captured by L 14 camera on board Chandrayaan II. The pictures show the earth in different hues. ISRO tweeted alongwith the pictures the earth as viewed by #Chandrayaan2 L I4 Camera yesterday.

AIR correspondent reports that the first set of pictures by the lander of the Chandrayaan-2 are only indicative of the high resolution camera it has. The LI-4 camera onboard the lander Vikram of the spacecraft show the crystal clear and panoramic view of the earth, around which it is still revolving. It will move away from the earth’s sphere of influence on the 14th of this month and reach the moon’s orbit on the 20th. Its pictures of the moon from then on would be still more fascinating, given its proximity to the earth’s only natural satellite. After its softlanding on the south pole of the moon, its pictures would arouse the curiosity of the global scientific community, as the region is yet unexplored.
