According to a report by The Times of India, ISRO has chosen two different landing sites for the lander. The first site is the primary landing site while the second one is a secondary backup site for the mission. It also noted that the lander will select the final landing site once it is just about 100 meters from the Moon surface. The lander will collect and analyze the data to make the decision in a matter of seconds. The report also stated that if everything goes according to the plan, the entire thing should take mere minutes to complete.

The primary landing site is situated between two craters on the Moon known as Manzinus and Simpelius. This site is just 350km north from the south pole on the moon. According to the information in the report, Moon lander Vikram will start its final descent from 35km above the surface. Within 10 minutes, the lander will be 7.4km above the surface. 38-seconds later, the lander will be 5km away from the surface.

Within 89 seconds, Vikram will reach 400 meters above the Moon surface. Here the lander will hover to collect some data. Immediately after this, the lander will reach 100 meters above the surface where it will stop to the device on the final landing site. If everything goes according to the plan, 65 seconds later, the lander will be 10 meters above the Moon surface if it chooses the first landing site. From here, the lander will take another 13 seconds to reach the surface. A successful moon landing will make India the fourth country to achieve this feat after the United States, Russia, and China.

ISRO also revealed that it will start a live stream and broadcast of the mission starting from 1:10 AM tonight. Interested people can either watch the telecast on Doordarshan or a webcast on the ISRO India website. In addition, ISRO will also stream the mission on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter.
