JERUSALEM (JTA) – The Israeli spacecraft Beresheet has sent home a video of a sunrise from the spacecraft's point of view before entering the lunar cycle.
The Beresheet camera also captured some selfie images with the ground from 81,400 miles and nearly 165,000 miles away. It also sent back a short selfie video.
The spacecraft is in its largest elliptical orbit around the earth and plans to cross the lunar orbit and be captured on April 4 at 251,655 miles from Earth.
Land of the month is expected to land on the lunar surface on April 11th. The landing site has been identified as the northeastern part of Mare Serenitatis or the Sea of Serenity, a flat area on the lunar surface.
The Beresheet spacecraft is a joint venture between private companies SpaceIL and Israel Aerospace Industries and continues to communicate with Israel Aerospace Industries and SpaceIL control rooms in Yehud in central Israel.
