There was supposed to be an image on Jan. 22, I think, about 3 days before sunset. It's not released yet. There were probably images on several adjacent orbits. This LPSC abstract:

http://www.hou.usra.edu/meetings/lpsc2014/pdf/1859.pdf

has an oblique image from the end of the first lunar day, so we may have had more like that as well as an overhead view.

Only a few days to sunrise for Yutu and Chang'E 3 now - I was just looking at the wide crescent tonight. It's getting bigger!

Most of the Surveyors survived the first lunar night, and that was in the 1960's. We'll keep our fingers crossed.

This is the second lunar night for both spacecraft though. The main landers should be fine, but Yutu itself...

Sun is up again in Chang'e land.
Will Yutu wake up once more?...

I've heard of some rumors on Weibo that Yutu survived, but I have also heard that these rumors are hoaxes, so I'm not reporting them in the blog.

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

From a credible source from Weibo: "we should get message from Yutu around Feb 10 at 3pm (Beijing Time; that's 7h UT, or 2am EST), and we will know if it is up for work, or cannot move anymore".
