NASA's Artemis 1 Orion spacecraft will arrive in orbit around the moon on Friday afternoon (Nov. 25), and you can watch the milestone moment live.

Orion has been making its circuitous way to Earth's nearest neighbor since launching last Wednesday (Nov. 16) on NASA's Artemis 1 mission — and the uncrewed capsule is about to reach its destination.

EST (2152 GMT), Orion is scheduled to perform an engine burn that will insert the spacecraft into a distant retrograde orbit (DRO) around the moon.
