The second orbit trimming for China's Chang'e-4 lunar probe was completed on Sunday afternoon at Kashgar Observation and Control Station in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.

This lunar probe was launched in the early hours of Saturday from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in southwest China's Sichuan Province. It will land on the far side of the Moon for the very first time.

The second orbit modification aims to confirm the status of the probe and check whether it can receive the information, laying the foundation for the next modification.

"We have just completed the second orbit modification for Cheng'e-4 and then we will conduct the third one to ensure that it can precisely enter the lunar orbit and prepare for a soft landing of the probe," said Li Peng, an assistant engineer with Kashgar Observation and Control Station.

After the launch, many observation and control stations in cities like Qingdao, Kashgar and Kiamusze under Xi'an Satellite Monitor and Control Center have tracked the lunar probe to ensure its normal operation.

In the next month, they are responsible for controlling the important movements of Chang'e-4 during the flight, such as orbit correction and near-moon braking, and adjusting the final attitude of the probe through a relay satellite named "Queqiao" to ensure a successful lunar landing.

"Compared to Chang'e-3, Chang'e-4 saves two hours to enter the lunar orbit. In the 110-hour-long orbit transfer from the Earth to the Moon, we will seize every second to upload the orbit parameters in time and ensure the third orbital transfer to be successful," said Liu Qing, an engineer in Kashgar Observation and Control Station.
