Aditya-L1 takes a selfie and snaps beautiful pictures of the Sun and Moon while traveling to L1.

Aditya-L1 from India took pictures of the Earth and the Moon and a selfie while traveling to Lagrange Point 1.
While traveling to Lagrange Point 1, or L1, India’s first solar-powered spacecraft Aditya-L1 took a selfie. According to the Indian Space and Research Organization (Isro), the camera on board Aditya-L1 snapped a photo of its main payload, the SUIT and Visible Emission Line Coronagraph (VELC) instruments, on September 4. On day two of its four-month journey to L1, the camera captured images of Earth and its lone natural satellite, the Moon.

Earth and the Moon are captured by Aditya-L1 as , which is heading for the Sun-Earth L1 point, shoots a selfie and pictures of the Earth and Moon. “Isro published the selfie and pictures of the Earth and Moon taken by the camera onboard Adtiya-L1 in a post on X, formerly Twitter.
In Andhra Pradesh’s Sriharikota, Adity-L1 launched on a polar launch satellite vehicle on September 2. The spacecraft successfully completed the second Earth-bound maneuver on Tuesday, achieving an orbit measuring 282 km by 40225 km.

The second Earth-bound maneuvre (EBN#2) for the Aditya-L1 mission was successfully carried out from ISTRAC in Bengaluru. During this operation, the satellite was tracked by ISTRAC/ISRO ground stations in Mauritius, Bengaluru, and Port Blair. The new orbit obtained measures 282 km by 40225 km, according to a post on ‘X’ by ISRO.early on Tuesday morning.

Largest payload carried by Aditya-L1 VELC will transmit 1,440 photos daily: Scientists
The next Earth-bound maneuver is slated to take place on September 10 at roughly 2:30 AM IST.

Aditya-L1 will be deployed in a halo orbit around Lagrangian Point 1 (or L1), 1.5 million kilometers from the Earth in the direction of the sun. Aditya-L1 carried seven distinct payloads to conduct a thorough study of the solar. Three payloads will measure in-situ parameters of the plasma and magnetic fields while the remaining four payloads will examine the sun’s brightness. The study of the solar corona’s physics and its heating mechanism, as well as the solar wind’s acceleration, coupling, and dynamics, are among the main goals of India’s solar mission.Near-Earth Space Weather, Coronal Mass Ejections (CME), Solar Wind Temperature Anisotropy, and Coronal Mass Ejection Origin.
