New Delhi, Aug 4 (IBNS): The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Sunday shared the first set of images of Earth captured by Chandrayaan 2's L14 Camera, which is on its way for the moon.

"First set of beautiful images of the Earth captured by #Chandrayaan2 #VikramLander Earth as viewed by #Chandrayaan2 LI4 Camera on August 3, 2019 17:28 UT," ISRO tweeted.

Chandrayaan-2 was launched on July 22 from the SHAR Range at Sriharikota, for its 3.844 lakh km, month-long journey for a soft landing on the Moon's South Pole.

Weighing 3,850 kg, Chandrayaan-2 is the country's second lunar mission to the little-explored south pole of the Moon with an aim to search for water and minerals among other scientific quests.

Chandrayaan-2 is carrying an Orbiter, Lander (Vikram) and Rover (Pragyan).
