Perhaps they turned right where we can see the rover tracks stops...
Well they must have done it that way...

I'm assuming these pancam images were taken looking in the next drive direction:

Still nothing immediately obvious on or just below the horizon .....


I still think the annulus of bright material we see in orbital images of vostok is nothing more than dust, all the craters have it, you can see it in orbital images of the craters Opportunity is sitting in front of right now, yet from the ground they appear pretty dark.

Sol 383: 177m
Sol 384: 104m
Sol 385: 109m
Sol 386: no drive
Sol 387: 80m
Sol 388: no drive

Interesting route there. Looks like they didn't quite want to visit the craters along the route but then all of a sudden changed their minds and made a quick shortcut to the crater triplet. That's where we are now... smile.gif

I think they did turn right as if you notice the tracks that are at an angle slightly disappear but the tracks that are aligned with the camera are more visible.

So tracks at 90 degrees to the camera will be invisible at that kind of distance as they will be hidden by the height of the dunes.

Wow, 450 meters, should have a good view of Vostok from there. 

Or maybe not huh.gif

Judging by the tracks, the feature on the horizon about a quarter of the way from the left edge of this image could be Vostok. I missed it the first time I looked at the picture as I was staring at the outcroppings.

That can't be because it's look at West. Vostok is toward South-East.

Hmm. Should've figured that out by the direction of the dunes. The last Pamcams from 2/24 are looking SE-ish.

Personally I don't think Vostok is visible at all unless you're almost on top of it. The rim is probably totally eroded away so that it's just a flat bedrock peeking through the soil.

I thought this was Vostok. It's about a third the way from the right side of the image, just below the horizon. They've been taking lots of L4 L5 L6 pictures of it for a while now.

No - I've made the same mistake - that's a large crater way out to the east somewhere. (notice the dunes running across the field of view - not in line with it )

They will have a hard time keeping this map up to date given Oppys current pace biggrin.gif

Already 300 meter farther south than the map shows smile.gif
