The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has released the second images set of Moon that captured by Chandrayaan 2.

ISRO Tweeted, "Lunar surface imaged by Terrain Mapping Camera-2(TMC-2) of #Chandrayaan2 on August 23 at an altitude of about 4375 km showing craters such as Jackson, Mach, Korolev and Mitra (In the name of Prof. Sisir Kumar Mitra)"

Sisir Kumar Mitra was an Indian physicist and Padma Bhushan recipient known for his pioneering work in the field of ionosphere and Radiophysics. The Korolev crater seen in the image is a 437 km crater, which combines several small craters of varying sizes.

Lunar surface imaged by Terrain Mapping Camera 2 (TMC-2) on 23rd August 2019 at an altitude of ~4375 km showing impact craters such as Jackson, Mitra, Mach and Korolev.
The TMC-2 camera also captured other important impact craters, Sommerfeld and Kirkwood. Sommerfeld is a large impact crater located in the farside northern latitudes of the Moon. “It is a 169km dia crater at 65.2°N and 162.4°W.”

It has a relatively flat interior surrounded by a ring mountain and a number of smaller craters lie along the rim edge. The space agency said the crater is named after Dr. Arnold Sommerfeld, a German physicist pioneer in the field of atomic and quantum physics.

Lunar north polar region imaged by Terrain Mapping Camera 2 (TMC-2) on 23rd August 2019 at an altitude of ~4375 km showing impact craters such as Plaskett (109km), Rozhdestvenskiy (177km) and Hermite (104 km ; one of the coldest spots in the solar system ~ 25 deg K).

Northeast to this crater lies the Kirkwood crater, named after the American astronomer Daniel Kirkwood. This too is a well-formed impact crater, which is approximately 68 km in diameter.

On August 23, Chandrayaan-2 had captured the 2nd Image of the lunar surface. The black and white image identifies two spots on the lunar surface.
