As reported by ISRO, India's solar mission Aditya L1 flew 9.2 kilometers from Earth and passed out of the Earth's zone of influence. Aditya is open to the Lagrange point L1, which is 1.5 million kilometers from Earth. According to ISRO, the spacecraft is presently on a course that will take it to the Sun-Earth L1 point. The spacecraft will enter orbit around L1 after 110 days. Aditya L1 will be the first Indian space observatory to study the Sun from orbit as a result of this. The probe, which was launched on September 2, will examine the Sun's photosphere, chromosphere, and corona.
