Any idea where Opportunity is now? The navcam pan looks nearly featureless - you'd think Vostok would be close enough now to be clearly imaged.

It's impossible to say, we'll have to wait for some official information from the people at JPL.... but Opportunity performed drives on sols 383, 384 and 385 - with hopefuly another one today, so they must be making good progress south.

So far no new images from sol 386 are in at the exploratorium. Did they have a restricted sol? They should be pretty far south after 3 consecutive days of driving. If Vostok isn't visible, is it because it is a flat feature?

Based on some of the latest images, looks like Oppy has been driving directly South which is more toward Vostok than the originally planned route. That route was more South/South-West toward the other small crater after Jason... Interesting... smile.gif

Maybe they'll come down in an overnight Oddysey pass?

According to the latest director update ( February 22nd ), Opportunity drove a whopping 177 meters on sol 383 and on sol 384 added another 104!

I had to listen more than one time to confirm that it was 177 m ohmy.gif
That's brilliant biggrin.gif

Could the feature on the right horizon be Vostok?

The figures given in the flight director's report were goals, not confirmed values. They'll find out today (from downloaded data) whether the goals were achieved or not.

I think she meant they were waiting for an imminent Odyssey pass with data and results of the Sol 385 drive.

I think we're somewhere in the lower end of the purple (200m) line on this map:

edit: ^^ it's a pretty wild guess though based on the fact that oppy took a turn toward South after Jason, not toward one of the other craters along the route... smile.gif

This must be the cluster of small craters on to the left of the 200 m mark

Very quick and dirty pan...

How did they get here from THERE?? blink.gif
Endurance+Heatshield to the left, but Oppy is coming from a different direction blink.gif
