It—the Orion Capsule—IS definitely currently orbiting the moon. Neat link though, thanks.

“Orion performed an 88-second engine burn Friday…that successfully inserted the spacecraft into a distant retrograde orbit (DRO) around the moon as planned.”

“The capsule will leave lunar orbit with an engine burn on Dec. 1, then start heading home to Earth.”

EDIT: Parent comment nope'd out. Neat link they posted that i mentioned above (visualizes mission progress/trajectory):
