Orion is now over halfway to the moon for its 25-day Artemis 1 mission.

NASA's Orion spacecraft has spotted the destination of its Artemis 1 test flight the moon and captured a stunning video to mark the moment. .

In a video released Friday (Nov. 18), the half-lit moon is visible in the distance with the Orion spacecraft in the foreground, complete with NASA's "worm" logo, as seen from a camera on the tip of one of the capsule's four solar wings.

"On the third day of the Artemis I mission, Orion maneuvered its solar arrays and captured the moon with a camera mounted on the end of the array," NASA wrote in the video description (opens in new tab). .

NASA launched Orion on is uncrewed Artemis 1 mission on Wednesday (Nov. 16) atop the agency's first Space Launch System (SLS), which is now the world's most powerful rocket.

NASA is using the mission as a flight as a test for its Artemis program to see if the SLS rocket and Orion are ready to fly astronauts to the moon, with a crewed lunar landing targeted for 2025.
