Chandrayaan-3: India waits for the monumental and momentous occasion of Chandrayaan 3 Vikram lander making an effort to soft-land on Moon tomorrow at 6.04 hrs in the evening.

In a tweet, ISRO has declared that its third Moon mission is on schedule and smooth sailing is continuing around the Moon. The Mission Operations Complex in Bengaluru is buzzing with activities as the countdown begins for the final descent of the Vikram lander that carries Pragyan Rover within it. ISRO has released images of the Moon captured by the Lander Position Detection Camera from an altitude of about 70 km.
