Israeli moon lander Beresheet sent another selfie, this time from a distance of 265 thousand kilometers (165 thousand miles) from Earth. The last selfie was from a distance of 131 thousand kilometers (81 thousand miles). Slowly increasing the apogee of its orbit around the Earth, Beresheet will soon reach the moon’s orbit, which is distant about 384 thousand kilometers (240 thousand miles) from our planet, at which time it will fire its retro rockets to enter moon’s orbit and then fire them once again to leave orbit and initiate landing procedure on the moon. This phase is expected to take place next Thursday, April 4th.
