Hello, from Australia! Looks like a successful launch of India’s Chandrayaan-3 lander mission, seen here from QLD (just some pics we managed to catch of the 3rd stage passivation), as it continues its journey to the Moon 🌝

Congrats to @isro! 🇮🇳

Perfect launch by ISRO. LVM3 keeping up its 100% reliability. It's also amazing to see the enthusiasm of the crowd at LVG.

Congratulations to @isro on the Chandrayaan-3 launch, wishing you safe travels to the Moon. We look forward to the scientific results to come from the mission, including NASA’s laser retroreflector array. India is demonstrating leadership on #ArtemisAccords!
