ISRO releases earth pictures captured by 'Chandrayaan-2'

Space agency ISRO on Sunday released the first set of pictures of the earth captured by 'Chandrayaan 2', the country's second Moon mission launched a fortnight ago.

The pictures were captured by L 14 camera on board 'Chandrayaan II'. The pictures show the earth in different hues.

"Earth as viewed by #Chandrayaan2 LI4 Camera on August 3, 2019 17:34 UT," the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) tweeted along with the pictures.

After the launch of 'Chandrayaan 2', there were several pictures which were claimed to have been taken by it. However, the space agency had said the images were not taken by 'Chandrayaan 2'.

India's second moon mission seeking to explore the unchartered Lunar south pole by landing a rover was launched on July 22.
