September 27, 2017

This map shows the route driven by NASA's Mars rover Curiosity through the 1828 Martian day, or sol, of the rover's mission on Mars (September 27, 2017).

Numbering of the dots along the line indicate the sol number of each drive. North is up. From Sol 1827 to Sol 1828, Curiosity had driven a straight line distance of about 96.87 feet (29.53 meters). Since touching down in Bradbury Landing in August 2012, Curiosity has driven 10.86 miles (17.48 kilometers).
