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.
