In a major milestone for the tiny country, Israel on Thursday became the seventh nation to orbit the moon.

A Space IL spacecraft called Beresheet is scheduled to land on the moon on April 11 after it entered the celestial body’s orbit, according to The Jerusalem Post. It was previously in the Earth’s orbit. 

An account that appears to belong to Space IL tweeted celebrating the entrance into the moon’s orbit.
