Orion took advantage of its flyby of the moon’s surface to take pictures.

NASA’s Artemis space mission has approached the moon and sent us the first satellite image.

The Orion capsule passed about 130 kilometers from the lunar surface and will now enter a wider orbit.

Since this operation took place on the dark side of the moon, communication with the rover was lost for 34 minutes during the maneuver, which officially began at 12:44 GMT.

NASA says the mission has “exceeded expectations” so far since its launch last week.
