The Beresheet spacecraft continues to release stunning images of space as it has successfully completed another Monday shift. After launching from Florida in February, the Israeli-built unmanned craft is supposed to land the moon on April 11.

The engineering team from SpaceIL and the Israeli Aerospace Industries said they performed the remote movement, which started and ran the spacecraft for 72 seconds.

"The teams are assessing the results of the movement in order to decide if another move is needed before heading towards the moon," he announced.

The move on Monday was preparing for "Capturing the Lunar", which is a complex movement where Berehseet will go to gravity of the moon and its orbit before landing. For the last number of weeks he has been turning around the earth.

The engineering team, based in Yehuda in the middle of Israel, took a rare photograph of the earth of about 10,000 miles away, the closest it goes to the ground before starting on behalf of next journey.

Last week, Beresheet took a breathtaking video of the dawn of space and hunie images broken with earth.

Beresheet, named after the Hebrew word for Book of Genesis, is the smallest craft by weight – only 1.5 m is measured. by 2 m. at 600 kg. (about 1,300 lbs.) The privately funded start up costs $ 100 million less costly compared to other deep space projects.
