Opportunity traverse map for sol 1742

Opportunity Sol 1742 Traverse Map

The red line on this image traces the route that NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity drove from its landing inside Eagle Crater on Jan. 4, 2004 (Universal Time; Jan. 3 Pacific Standard Time) through the 1,742nd Martian day, or sol, of the mission (Dec. 17, 2008). During that period, Opportunity drove 13.62 kilometers (8.5 miles).

Opportunity climbed out of the 800-meter-wide (half-mile-wide) Victoria Crater on Sol 1634 (Aug. 28, 2008) after spending almost 12 months exploring the crater's interior and the preceding 12 months examining it from the rim. The rover's next major destination is a much larger crater further south, Endeavour Crater, with a diameter of about 22 kilometers (14 miles).

The route and labels on this map are overlain on a mosaic of images from the Mars Orbiter Camera on NASA's Mars Global Surveyor and the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment Camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
