The Chandrayaan 2 mission was launched on June 22 and on September 7, ISRO had planned the soft landing of Vikram lander on lunar surface followed by the Rover roll out.
India's Chandrayaan-2 mission to the moon included a lander called Vikram, which was meant to gently land on the lunar surface near the south pole on September 6.
The US space agency released an image taken by its Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) showed the site of the spacecraft's impact.
NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter spotted debris, marked in green, and soil disturbance, marked in blue, caused by the hard impact of India's Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft on September 6, 2019. Despite the failed soft-landing, getting as close to the surface as Vikram did was an awesome achievement, the agency said. "S" indicates debris identified by Shanmuga Subramanian", the space agency said.

In September, India attempted to become only the fourth country to soft-land on the moon, but the Indian Space Research Organization lost touch with Vikram as it neared the lunar surface.
The first person to come up with a positive identification was Shanmuga "Shan" Subramanian, a 33-year-old IT professional from Chennai, who told AFP that NASA's inability to find the lander on its own had sparked his interest.
An image combining before and after photographs of the Vikram impact site highlights the dark inner and light outer materials splaying out from the impact. "After receiving this tip, the LROC team confirmed the identification by comparing before and after images", NASA stated.
The images for the first mosaic were acquired the impact point was poorly illuminated and thus not easily identifiable. This was the first piece of the lander's debris discovered, roughly 750 meters northwest of the main impact site. The LROC team scoured the surrounding area in these new mosaics and found the impact site and associated debris field. The images also showed the associated debris field. The November mosaic had the best pixel scale (0.7 metre) and lighting conditions (72° incidence angle). Changes to the surface are subtle and are more easily seen in the ratio image presented above.
