The Beresheet, the first Israeli spacecraft, was sent back to Earth for its first photographs taken from the far after the successful establishment of the lunar orbit

In a statement published by SpaceIL, a company that developed and operates Beresheet, a spacecraft intends to launch a planned landing on the Moon April 11 after a successful maneuver on Thursday.

"After studying the preliminary data obtained overnight from Beresheet by the SpaceIL and IAI engineering team, the control room updates that the Beresheet is in a magnificent orbit!

"The nearest point to the Moon (Perilune) is 470 km from the Moon and the most distant from the Moon (Apolune) at a distance of 1

0,400 km.

"The landing is scheduled for April 11 at about 23:00 Israeli time – an exact update will be published in the coming days. During the next week, intensive preparation for landing will be held.

"Yesterday, during a critical maneuver involving the moon, Beresh took amazing photos of the moon during the activation of engines."

Images taken by Beresheet were captured while the spacecraft was at a height of 470 kilometers (292 miles) from the surface of the moon.
