The spacecraft was 81 miles above the lunar surface and travelling at 5,102 miles per hour, according to a tweet from James Free, NASA's Associate Administrator for Exploration Systems Development. The fourth orbital trajectory adjustment burn of the Orion spacecraft had been successfully accomplished on the sixth day of the Artemis I mission. The tweet stated: "Fly-by finished!
