In the headline story:  "its orbit will have reached an apogee near the Earth/Moon Lagrange Point 1 (L1)."

But Jonathan McDowell tweets:

@planet4589
Danuri will head out to Sun-Earth Lagrange 1, and then fall back in towards the Moon, to enter lunar orbit.  Similar approach to the CAPSTONE mission.

So, Earth-Moon or Sun-Earth?

Yes - I was just going to respond to my own post.  Here:

https://www.kari.re.kr/eng/sub03_07_01.do

on the KARI website is an illustration of the path... it clearly shows the trajectory nearing Sun-Earth L1, but it is incorrectly labelled EM1. 

The same source has an illustration of the approach to lunar orbit after the excursion to Sun-Earth L1.  As it approaches the Moon it does a little jiggle around the Earth-Moon L2 point.

CAPSTONE update from #smallsat: spacecraft is performing well, nearing apogee later this month. Insertion into near-rectilinear halo orbit on Nov. 13. Used less propellant than planned.

First #KPLO #Danuri wheel offloading operation performed successfully today. Thrusters were briefly used to relieve built-up momentum in reaction wheels. Needs to be repeated roughly every 7-9 days
