The shuttle has ventured into a circle that is 119 km from the lunar surface at its closest point, and 127 km at the most remote. The following activity is the partition of the Vikram lander from the orbiter. Following this, there will be two deorbit moves for the lander to set up its arrival in the south polar area of the moon. It had effectively played out its fourth lunar circle move on Friday.

ISRO Chairman K Sivan has said the proposed delicate arriving on the Moon will be a "startling" minute as it is something ISRO has not done previously. On August 20, Chandrayaan-2 mission crossed a key achievement in its voyage to the Moon, after it entered the lunar circle, right around 30 days in the wake of being propelled on July 22 from the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota.

The mission goal of Chandrayaan-2 is to create and show the key advancements for start to finish lunar mission capacity, including delicate landing and wandering on the lunar surface.
