Israeli spacecraft ‘Beresheet’ sends first selfie from more than 23,000 miles away

(JNS) – The Israeli lunar spacecraft “Beresheet,” the Jewish state’s first, sent a photo of itself at a distance of 23,364 miles from Earth as it is heading to the moon.

The photo’s background shows the continent of Australia.

A plaque displays Israel’s flag with the inscriptions, “Am Israel Chai” (“the Jewish people lives”) and, in English, “Small Country Big Dreams.”

The unmanned spacecraft is scheduled to land on the moon in April.
