The Indian space agency announced that the powered descent for soft landing will take place at 1745 hrs.

"Chandrayaan-3 is set to land on the moon on August 23, 2023, around 18:04 Hrs. IST," read a tweet posted by the space agency.

"Thanks for the wishes and positivity!" it said.

"Let’s continue experiencing the journey together with live action in ISRO Website, YouTube, Facebook and DD National TV from 1727 hrs on Aug 23, 2023," ISRO said in the tweet.

ISRO said the second deboosting operation was done at 0200 hrs early on Sunday morning and the LM would await sunrise at the designated landing site and the powered descent will commence on August 23.
