CNTV: Chang'e 3 is a Triumph

"In a congratulatory message sent by the Communist Party of China Central Committee, the State Council, and the Central Military Commission, the success of Chang'e-3 mission was hailed as a 'milestone' in the development of China's space programs, a 'new glory' of the Chinese people in their exploration of the frontiers of science and technology and 'outstanding contribution' of the Chinese nation in the mankind's peaceful use of the space.
The photographing started at about 11:42 p.m. Beijing Time, when the six-wheeled Yutu moved to a spot about 9 meters north to the lander.
The color images, live transmitted via a deep space network designed by China, showed the Chinese national flag on Yutu. It marked the first time that the five-star red flag had pictures taken in an extraterrestrial body."
