#MarsOrbiter Burn must have started. All engines must have started firing by now. Skip a few heartbeats and stand by for confirmation.

Dammit can't they just show video or at least audio feed from control room...

India Prime Minister Narendra Modi is wearing a red jacket - symbolism?
He's certainly a big ISRO fan.

Confirmation of occulation should be received by now, but no mention by ISRO. Showing a video instead!

They're mixing up time of event vs time of confirmation. ISRO said that the burn would've started. We won't get confirmation, or know if it's flawless until another 5 minutes atleast. They only have confirmation of radio occultation.

EDIT: Radio occultation should have started. Confirmation yet to be received

It has happened in real time, but we won't know if the burn has started until 4 minutes later.  ;)
