The next orbit-cutting manoeuvre is scheduled for Wednesday between 3.30 am and 4.30 am.

According to details on the ISRO website, the orbit of Vikram Lander is 104 km x 128 km.

Lander Vikram was successfully separated from Chandrayaan-2's orbiter at 1:15 pm on Monday afternoon.

New Delhi: The scientists of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) have today sent Vikram Lander into the opposite orbit at 8.50 am on September 3. "Not just NASA, but the whole world would be interested in knowing about the moon and the universe by following Chandrayaan-2", he said. Former NASA astronaut Donald A. Thomas said on Sunday that the sight of Chandrayaan-2 landing on the moon would be seen by the United States agency NASA as well as people from all over the world. Their minimum distance from Moon is 119 km and maximum distance is 127 km.

Sivan earlier said the soft landing on the Moon will be a "terrifying" moment as it is something that has not been done before, whereas the Lunar Orbit Insertion manoeuvre was successfully carried out during the earlier Chandrayaan-1 mission. Chandrayaan-2 is made up of three parts - first- orbiter, second- Vikram Lander and third- Pragyan Rover.
