NASA claimed that the debris of Chandrayaan-2's Vikram lander was found 750 meters away from the crash site. The three largest pieces of debris are 2x2 pixels. NASA released a picture of the Vikram lander's impact site at around 1:30 pm on Monday night and reported that its orbiter had seen three pieces of the Vikram lander.

Earlier, the US space agency NASA had hoped to give information about Vikram, as its Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) was going to pass over the same spot where the Indian lander Vikram was expected to fall. NASA had earlier said that its LRO passed through Vikram's landing site on September 17 and high-resolution photos of that area were clicked.
