Beresheet now in final orbit prior to landing attempt

Week Four: Ninth Anniversary Fund-Raising Drive for Behind the Black

The fourth week of my annual anniversary fund-raising campaign for Behind the Black has begun.

I once again must thank the many readers and listeners who have generously donated this month. Right now there is a chance this will be the best fund-raiser ever, though only if a lot of people donate during the month's last ten days. If you want to help me continue my reporting, you can give a one-time contribution, from $5 to $100, or a regular subscription for as little as $2 per month.

For one time donations via Paypal, click here:

The new colonial movement: The privately-built Israeli lunar probe Beresheet has completed its last orbital maneuver before attempting a landing on the Moon tomorrow.

The elliptical orbit now has a low point of 9 to 10 miles above the lunar surface.

    This has to be very exciting for everyone involved with making Beresheet happen. I wish them the best of luck on a successful landing.
