New Delhi. The Chandrayaan-2 lander and rover lowered their orbit around the Moon a day after breaking from the Chandrayaan-2 orbiter and starting their own journey to the lunar surface. The first de-orbiting maneuver was successfully performed at 8.50 am on Tuesday morning.

The Vikram lander houses the six-wheeled rover Pragyaan, which will land near the lunar south pole on September 7.

On Tuesday morning, ISRO pushed Vikram to a lower orbit compared to the orbit it was in yesterday.

Vikram is now flying around the Moon in an orbit of 104 km x 128 km, at the closest point of the orbit.
