The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Wednesday (30 August) shared the first image clicked by Chandrayaan-3's rover Pragyan of the lander Vikram.
The picture is the first that the rover has clicked since landing on the moon.
The 'image of the mission' was taken by the Navigation Camera (NavCam) onboard the Rover.
Until now, all the photos and videos had been captured by the Vikram lander.
Taking to Twitter to share the photo, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) called it the "image of the mission".
The NavCams, onboard the rover, have been developed by the Laboratory for Electro-Optics Systems (LEOS) in Bengaluru.
"Smile, please! Pragyan Rover clicked an image of Vikram Lander this morning. The 'image of the mission' was taken by the Navigation Camera onboard the Rover (NavCam)," the ISRO said.
This comes just a day after the rover discovered sulphur near the Moon's South Pole using its Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscope (LIBS) instrument.
The robot also detected aluminium, calcium, iron, chromium, titanium, manganese, silicon and oxygen, ISRO announced on Tuesday (29 August).
"Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscope (LIBS) instrument onboard the Rover unambiguously confirms the presence of Sulphur (S) in the lunar surface near the south pole, through first-ever in-situ measurements. Al, Ca, Fe, Cr, Ti, Mn, Si, and O are also detected, as expected," the ISRO said.
"Search for Hydrogen (H) is underway," it added.
