The space agency further added that the exact location of the spacecraft still needs to be determined while sharing the pictures of the celestial body.

It was dusk when the landing area was imaged and thus large shadows covered much of the terrain,” said NASA while adding that the Orbiter will again try to capture the images in October when the lighting will be favourable.
