27 September 2019 Current Events NASA Releases Chandrayaan-2 Vikram's Landing Site

On Thursday, September 26, 2019, NASA has released a few high resolution images of Chandrayaan-2 lander Vikram's landing site. However, the US space agency officially declared that it was unable to detect the exact location of the lander. The images were captured by a Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) which was flying around the targeted landing site. The site was located in a south pole terrain which was at a distance about 600 kilometers (370 miles). The reason stated behind the agency not being able to locate the lander is presence of a shadow. But a second attempt will be made when the LRO passes over the site in October.
