Heading Toward ‚Von Braun‘ Mound
NASA’s Mars Exploration Rover Spirit used its navigation camera to capture this view of the terrain toward the southeast from the location Spirit reached on the 1,871st Martian day, or sol, of the its mission (April 8, 2009).
The mound on the horizon in the upper left is informally called ‚Von Braun‘ and is one of the features that rover team has designated as a possible investigation site in future months. From the location where Spirit was when the image was taken, Von Braun is about 525 feet, or 160 meters, away.
