Wake up by light and enter the 21st day working period. The working conditions of the two instruments are normal, the energy is balanced, and the exploration of the back of the moon continues.


According to the panoramic camera stitched image, DOM image and other data, the "Yutu-2" lunar rover will drive to the basalt or high-reflectivity impact crater area northwest of the current detection point during the daytime work period of this month. At that time, the panoramic camera, infrared imaging spectrometer, and central atom detector will be turned on for detection, and the moon-measuring radar will carry out simultaneous detection during driving.

In addition, the "Yutu-2" lunar rover plans to choose an opportunity to carry out panoramic photography in the higher terrain at the junction of the two impact craters (the edge of the degenerated impact crater).
