WASHINGTON - India's Vikram lunar lander, which crashed on its final approach to the moon's surface in September, has been found, thanks in part to the sleuthing efforts of an amateur space enthusiast.

NASA made the announcement on Monday, releasing an image taken by its Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter that showed the site of the spacecraft's impact on Sept 6.

A version of the picture was marked to show the associated debris field, with parts scattered over almost two-dozen locations, spanning several kilometers.
