Artemis 1’s Orion capsule snaps close-up photos of the moon

The moon looks spectacular in images captured by NASA’s Orion spacecraft as it cruised just 81.1 miles (130 kilometers) above the lunar surface during the Artemis 1 mission’s closest approach to Earth’s natural satellite on Monday (Nov. 21).

These detailed black and white images were snapped by the orion spacecraft‘s onboard optical navigation camera on day 6 of the mission, the same day it performed a crucial engine burn.
