According to Wikipedia, Vikram Sarabhai lander is scheduled to land on 7 September 2019, 01:55 IST (6 September 2019, 20:25 UTC).

Well, I need to stay wake up to see that the lander is landing on the Moon.

Here's the official live stream:


I'm only expecting live telemetry and the occasional low res image, but lets see.

Exclamation Re: Chandrayaan-2 mission news

I need to set an alarm to 12:45 IST to wake up and watch the lander lands on the moon. Once landed, I will sleep again with joy.

Unfortunately, it would ruin my sleep!

The technical glitches in the lifestream are really weird, I remember India to be more perfectionist there.

Loss of telemetry never a good sign.
Was that area well surveyed?
