As per the tentative plan the first deorbit will take place on Tuesday between 9 am and 10 am and the second one on Wednesday between 3 pm and 4 pm. The Chandrayaan-2 Orbiter continues to orbit the Moon in its existing orbit.

"Chandrayaan" landing on the moon, probably by next week, will be a great accomplishment not just for India, but for the whole of mankind, said Nasa astronaut, Donald Alan Thomas, who was interacting here with around 200 school students, on Saturday.

The rover carries two payloads to enhance the understanding of the lunar surface. This is the phase, including the powered descent, that we will be doing for the first time.

The final manoeuvre of Chandrayaan 2 happened on Sunday evening. All parameters of the spacecraft are normal, ISRO said in a statement.

Indian lunar lander Vikram has begun its journey's most crucial last leg after separating from Chandrayaan 2, which has been going around the Moon ever since it reached the lunar orbit on August 20.

The separation of Vikram, which is set for soft landing on September 7 on the lunar surface along with rover "Pragyan", was carried out at 13.15 Indian time and all systems of Chandrayaan-2 orbiter and the lander were healthy, it said.

Launch took place July 22 at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre atop of a GSLV Mk 3 launch vehicle, with five orbit raising maneuvers performed before trans-lunar injection August 13. The duration of the manoeuvre was 52 seconds. The "Man Mission" to the moon by Nasa also has been planned to land near the South pole, where "Chandrayaan" is expected to land soon.

The module will attempt India's first moon landing on a relatively flat surface on September 7 to study previously discovered water deposits. The spacecraft consists of an orbiter, a lander, and a rover together referred to as "composite body".
