Other Doug's comment gave me a brilliant idea (I get them a lot):

The people who bought the Lunokhods have also abandoned them. Well, they've clearly made no effort to salvage them, which counts as abandonment to me. So I'm going public with my claim to them - right here and now. After all, I've mapped the Lunokhod routes and landing sites in more detail than anyone outside the original science teams. Yup, they belong to me now. Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!

Just a minute while I add this to my CV...


... because the Solar System ain't gonna map itself.

If you are correct about Viking 2's position then I think that also counts as a significant factor so you should put in a claim for that too.
