The video was captured at 1305 UTC on the sixth day of the flight Artemis I mission 25.5 days, shortly after the departure flyby and six minutes after the spacecraft regained contact with the space agency’s Deep Space Network.
The Orion spacecraft is on its seventh day in the mission on Wednesday, November 23, a test flight around the white satellite paving the way for astronauts to fly on future missions.
It is expected that on November 25 at 21:30 UTC, the engine will kick in for insertion into the far retro orbit scheduled for the mission. On Saturday, Orion is expected to break the distance record achieved by a spacecraft designed for humans, to reach 400,000 km from Earth.
