The Orion I captured close-up shots of the craters dotted across the lunar surface, 81 miles away, while traveling at 5,102 miles per hour. At the time of this trip on November 21, the capsule was 230,000 miles from Earth.
The vehicle is scheduled to fire up its engine on Friday to orbit the moon, and if all goes well, Orion will remain in orbit for the next week before returning to Earth on December 1.
