Congratulations to LADEE on arrival at the Moon!

After a one-month journey from Earth to the Moon, NASA's Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) safely entered orbit at 10:57 UTC today, October 6. More details are available in a story from Spaceflight Now, but not from NASA, because NASA's public affairs offices are closed due to the government shutdown.

Or you can just enjoy the happiness of LADEE's navigators:
