New Delhi:

On the eve of New Year, Mangalyaan – India’s Mars Mission – sent a special message to Earth, which was accompanied by a New Year gift for earthlings.

"Happy New Year. Dear earthlings! North Pole looks wicked cool here!" read the post from ISRO's Mars Orbiter.

The Mars Orbiter sent a stunning, rare picture of the full disc of Mars along with the message. The picture was taken from 55,000 km, showing the frosty north pole of the Red planet.

The New Year gift was loved so much that it garnered 2000 retweets and over 1200 likes. India's maiden mars orbiter Mangalyaan is located around 200 million km from Earth.

Mars Orbiter made its last tweet in July, when it sent the "first snap after coming out of blackout".
