Scott Tilley is an Amateur Astronomer, who has found the weather satellite of the United States in 2018, ‘IMAGE’ – considered to be lost on September 10, tweets: “#DSN 24 beams 12KW of RF at the #Moon in hopes of stimulating #Chandrayaan2’s lander #VikramLander into communicating with home.”

It continued: “Here’s an eerie recording of the searcher’s signal reflected off the Moon and back to Earth via EME (Earth Moon Earth) on 2103.7MHz.”

Tilley said in another tweet, “Meanwhile the DSN24 continues emitting its beacon in hopes #VikramLander will respond…A Good Night all!”

The ‘IMAGE’ satellite was unveiled in 2000 by NASA and lost contact after five years.
