Chandrayaan news!

The spacecraft is now circling the Earth in an orbit whose apogee (farthest point to Earth) lies at 267,000 km (Two lakh sixty seven thousand km) and perigee (nearest point to Earth) at 465 km. In this orbit, Chandrayaan-1 takes about six days to go round the Earth once.

From this ISRO press release. I would have loved some colour pictures too — but, you know, black and white pictures have a charm of their own!
